On a day of days I dreamed a dream
of meeting face-to-face,
who God might chose .
Before everything happened, God picked
a soul to merge with mine, to
become WE for endless eternity.
On windy, winding river bank
I walked. And talked
with a snake, snail and a shell.
Not complaining about the sandy mire
in which sunk my feet,
I spoke of what
my mind thought and soul desired
Our conversation continued
as they said to me:
"All life is twain:
One, a frozen stream;
the other, a burning flame.
And that burning flame is LOVE!”*
Far distant, I saw one
heavenly being approach me
from another direction.
Her feet did not touch dirty sand.
"What is your name?”
No sound, but I heard, “LOVE!”
Vision beautiful said, without speaking,
"God sent me, lent me, to you.
You are me.
I am you.
One are we.
Friends in body, mated in soul.
Our union—blessed--shall not end with time.
Eternity is now, this moment, which IS 'now and forever'.
Nothing must be counted--ever--after this time.”
