“I HAD A DREAM; I HAD A DREAM!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Reflections of Love!” Tuesday: September 18, 2018
Years ago, at a boarding house, at night – ‘twas 2:00 or 3:00,*
I-awoke-from-a-dream, and I was crying! [Pray tell, what did you (I) see?]
AN AWESOME FIGURE STOOD BEFORE ME, EXUDING LOVE DIVINE,
HIS FACE, IT SHONE – JUST LIKE THE SUN,
AND-HE-ASSURED- ME: “YOU ARE MINE!”
But-no-words-were-spoken-and-His-shining-face – was glorious to see,
YET – I could FEEL those words & love – such love! and-it-was-for-me!!
For me!! Unworthy – Lost – and Harried! How can this thing be?
That one-such-as-I could-have a Protector! I cried out – for -pi-ty!
For I was resting on my back, and-I-only-wished-return,
To my “Friend,” I cried, “ PLEASE SEND – me back; I’ve much to learn!”
I closed my eyes, and, yes, my cries: They took me to His place;
“Was He an angel? Perhaps, Lord Jesus? I stared up in His face!
We’ll NEVER KNOW just what we’re worth;
Perhaps we’ll have “a Second Birth,”
Just like Jesus – and-Krishna too,
Will-a-bodhisattva – come-back for you?
We’ll never know just what we’re worth – or what we REALLY are,
But we can guess! The very best: Magnificent by far,
And I’d-felt-such-LOVE, ne’er-before – His face became quite clear,
And I was shocked – by his visage – for it was ME, my Dear!! 🙂
- 2:00-3:00 A. M.
I awoke one day & I was GOD – it was sight to see!! / And all the people, for miles around, they all just came to me: / And said: “Pray, tell, what will you do; we’d really like to know!” / “The same old stuff!” I did reply; “only-I’d-like-to-take-it-slow!” er “JUST A LITTLE SLOWER! And-maybe-I’ll-smile-more! And-maybe-I-won’t-give-as-many-middle-fingers-to-the-people-pounding-at-my-door!” 🙂
