For a Friend

For a Friend Deep in the forest of your dark Spanish eyes Past the gaudy shops and glaring street signs, There is a dim distant glow, You think it is far, but look: how steady it shines And though small, it is whole and continues to grow. You are disillusioned and tired of this pointless game, And try to escape, out of the rigid old frame And your restrictions and chains. You long for the other, Who You think will fill and complete You But your childish lovers, till now Simply use and deplete You. You search for your knight, with the warming flame To light up your life and ignite your soul, And think that this time it won’t be the same, But all he can do is take And burn a hole. He said, “I’ll never break Your heart or make You cry, I can’t live without You and will love You till I die”. You wish You had that in writing As he left without even saying goodbye. And again, You don’t understand why. And again, You feel cheated, hopeless and used, Abandoned, angry, frustrated and abused. But your heart, though right now, feels confused, IS pure and strong. Even though You’re still bruised And even with all the wounds and scars, I know how beautiful You REALLY are, So for me, You don’t have to hide Or think that You’re somehow wrong, For deep inside, I know You have also a song And only You can sing it And only You can bring it Out, So that You can also know That You are much much more than just your mind, And when You let go, You fall, but will find Soft grass in the garden of your being. And your tears can wash and heal your pain And are cleansing and strangely freeing. And as they melt the mists of your shame, And though in the gap, Hear me calling your name. And ever so slowly and gently, You Start to open your doors and windows again. Your sensual, fierce love is still So natural and pure And even when You sometimes Feel, shy and insecure, Please remember: You are A proud and powerful Queen, Yet gentle and tender, And a wise deep Woman, whose truth Can heal and clean. So don`t be afraid, stand tall Then your presence can be felt And your light can be seen, And one day your King will come And will ask: “where have You been?” You are A free spirit, a daughter of this Sacred Earth You are Already rediscovering your treasures, Inner pearls and diamonds beyond measure. And to find your pure essence, Must leave your cheap compromises, expectations and fear And come back home, come back here. You follow your Soul’s threads into the open sky The wind is whispering, inviting, so trust your wings and fly. She, calls You by your secret name And your dim distant light, becomes a roaring flame. As You laugh, the Mother embraces the child And as You dance and shake your Lionesses mane The Woman is free – gentle and wild. Deep in the forest of your dark Spanish eyes Past the gaudy shops and glaring street signs There was, a distant glow It was far, but now, look: how steady it shines And: it is whole and continues to grow. © Sangeet Portals 2017
