I was walking with you one night
Under an obsidian sky
Scattered with precious sparkling rubies.
As we walked and talked together about our
Dreams and accomplishments,
There was a sound coming
From the night above.
It was the sound of weeping
From some sad soul
The starry blackness of space.
I looked up while there with you
And called out saying,
“Night…is that you? Why do you cry?
Said the night, “ I lament because I am not
Beautiful… because I do not have her hair?”
I was amazed but then I looked to the east
and as the Sun grew above the horizon
it also wept and with it’s astounding rays shooting toward the sky it pierced the night sending it to it’s doom .
I asked the Sun, “Sun why do you weep?
The sun answered, “I weep because I am not beautiful
Because I do not have her eyes”
I was again amazed but then I looked upon the ground
To see a lovely flower opening it’s petals to kiss the sun
And crying it said “ I weep because I am not beautiful
For I do not have her heart.”
I turned again to see swans weeping
on a lake as still as glass saying,
“we are not beautiful because we do not have her throat”
The weeping continued and came from the mountains,
And the mountains cried saying
“we are not beautiful for we do not have her breasts”
The lush green earth cried out saying
“I am not beautiful because I do not have her skin”
The ocean cried out “I am not beautiful because I do not have her her shape.”
I turn to you, taking both of your hands so that our eyes meet “We must stop this madness, this sadness, so there will be peace.”
And you said “What must we do?”
Their tears are more precious than a million prayers…
so we must answer them and give them what they desire.
By speaking the truth…
That your hair is the night sky
Adorned with the beauty of the universe
The sparkle of which leads the way for lonely ships.
Your eyes are the rising sun
Whose rays gently kiss the day
To chase away the darkness of night
Your heart is the flower that
Opens it’s petals in faith
toward the light of God
And toward those who carry him.
You are the swan that glides across the still
Water whose throat is like a column of
Ivory holding up the sky
You are the mountains that rise
Toward the heavens whose curves
Are gently kissed by the warm summer rain,
and caressed by the silky mountain breeze.
Your silky-smooth skin
is the lush fertile earth that glows
With light and blossoms and with the taste of honey and every sweet thing
You are the ocean, who is deep and mysterious;
Mystical , soft, hard, absorbing the attention
Of all who come near you….
Suddenly all the weeping stops.
And as you stand there, you glow like a goddess
With illumination of seven suns
That you are everywhere
You are everything,
You are the night
You are the earth
You are the flower
You are The sky
You are the sun,
You The sea,
You are The land,
You are The swan,
You are the wind,
You are the rain,
You are the fulfillment of all your dreams,
You are the creative power of the breath of God.
And As we face each other,
We hug each other tightly,
And smile as we melt into one another's soul.
