Poem: In Distant Lands, Unspoken Love

In a thin transparent space between

The seen and the unseen;

The known, and the unknown;

The unspoken and the whispered –

You are there.

In the distant lands where still you roam

Bearing burdens not your own;

A sacrifice you are not called to make,

Your heart at war with self, with time, with space –

You are there.

And I am here

In the thin transparent space between

The seen, and the unseen;

The known, and the unknown;

The unspoken and the whispered groans –

I am here.

In the place from which you left to roam,

Bearing burdens not my own;

A sacrifice I did not hesitate to make,

For a heart at war with self, with time, with space –

I am here.

In that thin transparent space,

Beats the heart of Love – your true fate;

Whispered in soft prayers and groans;

Incense rises, sweet scent before the throne.

In this place of love and faith

Burdens lifted for your sake –

A sacrifice, to claim you for its own;

Love eternal, in your heart enthroned
