The Gift




The Gift

 

 The gift you bring to me

Is intricately wrapped

In the experience of knowing you.

As the precious moments

Of my eternal being

Are shared with you

In passages of exploration,

We will reach out to touch

Each other's hearts and souls.

 

And when the present,

As we know it,

Has slipped away

To some distant plane,

The essence of your gift

Will still remain with me ...

as memories.

 

As I unwrap your gift,

Before my wondering eyes,

I stop to ponder the nature

Of this parcel given me.

 

I must ask myself,

What are the attributes

Of this mysterious package?

 

Will it be filled with humour?

Will we laugh and giggle,

Play with words,

Tickle one another's

Sense of the bizarre,

And fill the hours

With our streams of joyous laughter?

When the memory of you,

Comes unbidden to my mind,

Will it tug at my lips

Curving them into a rueful smile?

 

Will it be filled with passion?

Will we be grounded in the physical?

Sharing the sensual joys of touch,

Arousing desires that will enflame

Our minds with erotic pleasures?

When the memory of you,

Comes unbidden to my mind,

Will my body tremble with

The joy of having known all of you?

 

Will it be filled with lessons?

Will we struggle to resolve

The feelings that we cannot

Grasp and deal with happily?

When the challenges arise,

Will habits and patterns,

Older than the web of lives incarnate,

Rob us of the joys

That we might have shared?

When the memory of you,

Comes unbidden to my mind,

Will a sweet sadness pervade my body,

As I recall the learning

That you brought to me?

 

Will it be filled with nurturing?

Will we share a love so rare

That all the Angels will exclaim

In awe and envy at its beauty?

Will we support and cradle

One another in great times of need

And rejoice at each other's sweet successes?

When the memory of you,

Comes unbidden to my mind,

Will I sigh with great contentment

At knowing such a love as ours?

 

The gift you bring to me

Is rare indeed.

And when this parcel is fully opened,

I will treasure every facet,

As it sparkles and twinkles at me

Across the vast expanses

That the Universe provides.

And when the memory of you,

Comes unbidden to my mind,

I will know that I am,

By far the richer,

For having received this gift

Which you have shared with me.
