IT DOESN'T .....
IT DOESN'T .....
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream,
for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow
If you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled
and closed form fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the causation of betrayal not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty, even when it is not pretty, everyday.
And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can love with failure, yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon.
It doesn’t interest me
To know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief
and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what
needs to be done to feel the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be there.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustain you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

This is very deep my dear. Most people are not this emotionally advanced. Some are just to fearful to explore. Others are just ignorant that they can be this deep with themselves. Passion is a very powerful but risky trait. It must be spent wisely. I think you are on the right track my love.|

A Friend's love says: " If you ever need anything, I'll be there."
True Love says: " You'll never need anything; I'll be there."
