To my friend, K

At least once in a life time
We all pass through
the valley of love.

See the open meadow,
Hear running stream,
And yes…colourful butterflies…
free in the air, dancing life
consoling love.

Yes, we see and wonder…
the secret in their highs
Their serenity,
in belonging to sky
their joy in following
the wind under their little wings…

the eternal children
cheerful in now
gripped by joy…
disappear from eyes
while they still reside
in the valley of love.

We have never learnt
to trust our nature,
and know
our dance is designed.
faith is the secret strength
moving us through life,
we guess
happiness is the comfort,
while our peace turns to dust
in anger, depression and lust.

The hours are ours,
The meadow is always open,
Butterflies, our friends
inviting us.

Next visit,
of the valley
stay still,
no rush to pass by
listen to silence, feel the freedom,
be open, and receive the touch,
the trembling in your heart,
be open,
to surrender to what it sings,
and grow wings
stay in the valley,
dance your nature,
Hear your sweetest names,
unearthly music
transforming your heart shape,
burst out in love.

Find yourself in your true nature
you are an eternal child,
belonging to the poundings of the hearts.
beyond all valleys, meadows
and even sun.

heaviness is lifted
all is here
is a boundless blue sky.
