Do you know?
The sky just whispered into my ear
a secret
that I vowed not to share –-
but I cannot stop myself!
This is what the sky told me:
“Do you know
that I admire
You
with all my heart?
That the earth,
as you step upon it
reveres
You
and appreciates your divine connection with it?
Do you know
that the flowers are exuding their fragrance
to remind
You
how much they celebrate
You?
Do you know
that the air
as it flows into
You
is in rapturous adoration of
You
and of every cell of your being?
That the water
that washes your body
is in ecstatic bliss
at the chance of getting to have such intimate contact with
You?
Do you know
that all the food that this beautiful planet has provided for
You
is in such absolute admiration of
You
and is so thrilled to be consumed by
You
and to ravish your body
from the inside
with its perfect love?
Do you know that the sun is shining upon
You
saying to
You
with its warmth:
‘You,
You,
my Precious One--
You
are the love of my life!
You
are the one I cherish with all of my heart!
You
are the one that I say,
‘yes,
yes my love’ --
to your every desire.”
Do you know…
That all this is here for
You?
