In Service Of The Heart

 

If I spent some time every day connecting to my heart

If I spent some time every day connecting to the stillness there

If I spent some time every day connecting to the peace there

If I spent some time every day connecting to the love there

If I spent some time every day connecting to the Mystery there

If I spent some time every day connecting to myself there

I might live with a little more kindness

I might live with a little more gentleness

I might live with a little more compassion

I might live with a little more gratitude

I might live with a little more peace

I might live with a little more caring

I might live with a little more connection

I might live with a little more awareness

I might live with a little more softness

I might see you in me

I might see your journey beside mine

You on your path through life

Me on mine

And I might ask

Can I share a moment with you

That may be a word, a touch, a breath, a look

From my heart

That simply says

I see you

Can I take a moment to wonder at the world

A flower, a tree, a cloud, the sky

And be a part of it

And breathe thanks

Can I soften my grasp on acquiring

And consider creating

And grow the understanding that there is enough

Can I take a moment to go within

And heal my hurts

That I may be whole to share myself

With life

And teach my children so

And can I sit with you, my love

Your hand in mine

And know, simply know

That your heart beats with mine

Beats with the tides

Beats with the breeze

Beats with the rising sun

Beats with life

Beats with love.
