How many lifetimes have I lived
To reach this feeling?
How many times have I looked
Through different eyes,
With the same soul?
And each time,
The eyes have seen further and opened wider,
Until the distant horizon is reached,
In only a blink,
And voyages of lifetimes enter the realm of yesterday,
I see infinity in your eyes,
And a mystery that defies all understanding,
You are the embodiment of a world beyond worlds,
Yet you dance in the eternal moment,
With your playful innocence,
You teach me the art of being,
And of playing,
Of living in the ever-new moment,
To tiptoe in twilight,
And frolic in the morning light,
How many lifetimes have you lived, Beloved?
To teach me this, in your unconditional ways?
How many times have you lovingly taught
The same lessons,
So that we may all be free?
And each time, it is your own eyes,
That have truly seen,
And it is your own heart,
That has opened wider,
Until the suffering and sorrow of humanity,
Is no more,
And in those eternal moments of your love,
The whole planet is healed
