When everyone else is long gone, you come to meet me in a secret place.
When I’ve transcended all hope, and forgotten my name, you appear.
You teach me how to sing these love songs, beyond fear and longing.
Without you, my heart circles galaxies in a futile search of the One.
Somehow, at the end of this Great Mystery, you remain as me, I as you.
This is a poem I wrote in 2014.
