What follows is a beautiful poem a dear friend wrote for me…
dharma dharma
I am you and you are me.
dharma dharma
soothe my anger
and take my eyes and help me see
dharma dharma
I’m cold and lonely
take my pain and help me grow
dharma dharma
I am lost and wanting
sooth my desire for things I shouldn’t have
dharma dharma
wild and wooly are the ways of the blind
turn my gaze toward the sunlight
turn my bile into wine
dharma dharma
call me back from the edge
call me back from the dark
dharma dharma
fill my heart with loving kindness
fill my mind with clarity and joy
dharma dharma
fill my black mood with clear vision
take my hatred and wash it clean
dharma dharma
be my muse and be my guide
give me the courage to never hide
dharma dharma
turn my arrogance into humility
and my hatred into love
dharma dharma
replace desire with measured wisdom
and my anger with understanding
dharma dharma
I am you and you are me.
