So Gently


How many ages I wandered,
How many lifetimes…


How many ages I wandered,
How many lifetimes,
In search of the Beloved.

Following the Fragrance,
I wandered for Eternities,
Until I could wander no more.

And there… exhausted,
Collapsed in despair, falling,
Into the Cave of my Heart.

Where, beyond all hope,
My tear-stained face was lifted,
So gently…
