Lamenting Forgiveness

Once upon a lullaby,
I dared to dream of only I.
I dared project my Darkest Being,
I dared reflect, considered fleeing.

I brought both pain and liberty,
And hurt revered aspects of me.
My love still true but ever failing,
Escape from you; my ship is sailing.

I dream of Light’s undying land,
Of time and tide and flowing sands,
Of Beauty, Love and self perfection;
Yet blood and lust steal my direction.

I have again brought darkness then.
Remembering not nor where or when,
I sat at peace, with thanks did pray;
Anchored where my Centre lay.

I know of course this all be part,
Of my bleeding yet Sacred Heart.
This Happiness and all things Good,
Come as they choose, and as they should.

Forgive me then for bringing pain.
This comes, I swear, still in Love’s name.
For day and night are one and other,
Dark and light and sister-brother.

I flow through each and yet remain,
A single, shining, flickering Flame,
Projecting shadow, projecting light;
I dance with darkness and burn too bright.

I love myself and Other too;
My failings are a part of you.
We are but weak yet must forgive;
For I would die that you might live.
