The words “I Love You”
wash over me and through me
and in me
so very gently
this must be of God
rhythmically they come
and I cannot distinguish which one of us is speaking
God or me
it’s like we are both speaking through
the same medium of my consciousness
we speak the words to each other in union
and then the words shift to “Thank You”
and gratitude swells yet the gentleness remains
and then we go deeper into silence
becoming so purely gentle there are no words
then after a while “I Love You” returns
I do love You – I do.
It’s like the gentleness of the ocean lives within me.
I welcome You, oh God.
I surrender all to You.
