"When your soul awakens, you begin to truly inherit your life. You realize how precious your time here is. You are no longer willing to squander your essence on undertaking that which does not nourish your life."
Love After Love
The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door,
in your own mirros,
and each willsmile at the ohter's welcome
and say, sit here Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine, give bread.
Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for anohter, who knpws you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
