Poem to a friend

You stand before me, eyes downcast
Answers you seek, to questions unasked.
Confused and bewildered ~ alone and sad
You came to me, seeking, sky clad
Your fate is yours, I say
Your plea "Enlighten me ~ Show me the way!"

Slowly your head begins to rise
Surely now, you can attain the prize?
You struggle with the darkness ~ imposed from within?
You fight constantly ~ a sense of self to win?
Perhaps today you'll be strong enough to look
And discover answers not written in a book.

You have a keen mind ~ filled with ideas and thought
Finely honed ~ but lacking the direction you've sought.
Stumbling around like a child without a task.
Seeking answers, you've come and imploringly ask,
"What do you mean when you say to look inside?
Are the answers there and from me they hide?

I see your eyes so bright and clear
Filled with pain and just a touch of fear.
Hidden are the emotions ~ you do it well
Deep within that facade you call a shell.
I stroke and caress, I let your body know
That sensual spirit is wanting to grow

Your lips twitch with a hint of glee
At last, you think, you've found a key
You hear me speak of love and life
Of friends I've helped in their times of strife.
But alas ~ the path is so easy to miss
Oft only revealed in the passion within a kiss.

In the beating of your heart is revealed
A history of sadness and betrayal to be healed.
A void lies within, longing to be filled
I can be a guide, a mentor, a shield.
But the path is yours, no longer can you balk
With a trust, that by your side I will walk.

Down into the darkness seeking your light
You know you're not the first in this plight.
Others have paid the ferry man's toll
Not knowing the price - the loss of a sensual soul.
The journey's not easy and can often be long
Discovering kindred spirits to join in their song.

You stand before me ~ your eyes open wide
Seeing at last, the volcano inside.
A person imbued with the heat of a star
No longer hiding the person you are
You stand before me ~ finally seeing
You stand before me ~ a proud, sensual being.

This truth exists in a moment, a place
The present a gift, we must fully embrace
Tomorrow who knows where either will be
For right now it is only you and me
But never again can you put on a shelf
The sensual being that is your sensual self.

I've had to read this several times. I will have to read it several more times.

For any sensual person this idea of being "present" to the moments of sweet life. May you have much sweetness and the ability to be "present" to life.
