BECAUSE I AM WITH GOD, I LIKE IT WHEN IT RAINS….

Because I am with God

I like it when it rains

Or I simply do not notice

The rain at all

Because I am with God

My pain is brief and tended to

By a kind friend

Who redirects me

To the ripples

On the harbour

reflecting the brightly coloured lights

Because I am with God

I care for myself and ask myself often

What is it that I want?

And what do I want after that?

And after that?

Do these pieces fit?

Or should I write a poem instead

And go to bed alone?

Uncannily, that’s when I find

The most marvellous company

Because I am with God

I carry awe in my soul

And I marvel at my happiness

And I marvel at my sadness

And I remain at the heart

Orientated, even in my disorientation

Because I am with God

One lychee is all I need

To be blissful

(And I am a novice at this)

The tiniest pleasure is a gift

As deep as the universe

Because I am with God

I must tell you that I am incapable

Of not loving you

But I will accept your departure

As gracefully as your arrival

And count my blessings equal

For there is, in this world, no light without shadow

Without shadow there is no light

How else could I illuminate my true nature,

Its every contour?

Because I am with God

I will put Our closeness before

My heedless desires

Yet examine them closely

For how often God is hidden

Oh, so mischievously

In the strangest,

The most unexpected of loves

Because I am with God

I don’t mind not knowing.

I take pride in my lack of pride

For how often is pride

Merely the last defence of a fearful ego?

Because I am with God

I speak the truth

And I digest it faster than I used to

Because I am with God

I trust when the world says I should not

I do it for myself because I care too much

To invite fear or sacrifice love

For the perceived rights

And wrongs of this game we call living

Because I am with God

There is no room in my heart for hate

And so I love, when all others counsel no,

And I follow respect only as far as it brings happiness

To myself and my fellow beings

Because I am with God

I risk it all for love

If you try it, you will realise it’s much less painful

Than trying to tear your heart in two

Because I am with God

I am ready always

To surrender my every desire.

Curiously, my cup has never been so full

Even when it seems

That I am staring into emptiness

Because I am with God

There is nothing to be had

Nothing to be lost

Nothing not to be

I am with God

Because I accept nothing

From myself

Except Love
