Destiny Is Yours

You have inspired sunshine to illuminate dark woods.
Anything remotely associated with you sends birds to song.
Rivers overflow with my emotions.
My gaze melts snow, when I think of you.

There is no wound that my love can not penetrate.
No tear that my devotion will not absorb.
Take your fears and cast them onto my sturdy shoulders.
Let my warmth lift your lowest days.

It is not too late to issue a reorientation.
Disembark from your present course.
Alter destiny’s compulsion.
You are free to pursue liberty.

You will know where to find me,
on the lonely mountain communing with the wind,
stoking an unconditional fire.
Follow the trail of sweet smelling smoke, 

until you find me.
