He said to me..

He said to me..

A Poem by BlueGene

We were born together, and together we shall be forevermore..

We shall be together when white wings of death scatter our days..

We shall be together even in the silent memory of God..

       But let there be spaces in our togetherness,

       And let the winds of the heavens dance between us..

Love one another but make not a bond of love,

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of our souls..

       Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup..

       Give one another of our bread but eat not from the same loaf..

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of us be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music..

       Give our hearts, but not into each other's keeping..

       For only the hand of Life can contain our hearts..

And stand together, yet not too near together..

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
