Revelation of the light

Light returns

When you reach out a hand to me

In friendship

When we both make the effort to understand

The tangled by ways of each other’s hearts

I do believe one of the most painful sufferings

Of this modern life

Is the sense that we are separate

Or set so far apart

From each others hearts

At times feeling ourselves to be

Alien strangers

In an even more alien land

Wandering in search of lost light

At times many of us have had to travel

The darker pathways of the emotional wilderness alone

Longing ever so deeply for that peaceful place

We could call home

Sometimes

In the best of times

We find that home

Within the heart of another

Be it friend, mentor or lover

The one willing to embrace

The whole of us

No matter what the cost

And sometimes after a long time of struggle

Many of us

Find this place called home

Deep down inside the marrow of our bones

As we surrender fully to our truth

And melt away

All the barricades

Our soul’s erected

Against loving self and other

And it is then

We experience our own

Unique brand

Of homecoming

A sense of life and faith

And joy and hope returning

As we reach out a hand

To befriend the whole of us

Witnessing and surrendering

All within us

That blocks us from

The revelation of the light
