I Give Myself Over


I give myself over….


If I am to feel in love in a moment, 
A day, a month,
A lifetime…
With a heart so open and vulnerable


Then let it be so

If I am to have my heart break and reform continuously

Then let it be so

If I am to let go of attachments-  turning them over

Then let it be so

If I am to forgo conditioning of a lifetime
And the pain that brings

Then let it be so….

I give myself over ~

I give myself over ~

I give myself over ~

In love deeply with the mysteries
Which infuse my being so deeply-
So delicately, so tenderly…
Cradling and loving my fears…

With all the courage I can muster,
In this human fragility
In all of my imperfections…

Humbly, softly, and perhaps a little messily

I kneel….

I surrender

To this path, to myself, to the divine
And to All it shall bring.…

Yes…. Just yes…

I just surrender…
