Illusive Fate

Love is found within the letting go
its freedom gives it room to live and grow

Decisions that I thought were mine
came from a movement beyond time
that gives and takes and fades away
in roles that we no longer play:

good little Catholic, obedient child
once allowed, becoming wild
dance of passion and desire
and darkness makes the flame grow higher

Always searching, rarely finding
place where we belong
follow path thatís ever winding
from the weakness, become strong

Know yourself as more than role
a vast and ever-growing whole
in point of balance, dark to light
in night-time sky, star burning bright

when only silence speaks
and only spirit seeks
for meaning now eluding mortal mind
in meditative silence we will find

the meaning in the meaningless
as salty-sweet of loverís kiss
will send us on a joyful ride
but, as the sun sets, turning tide

reveals a vast expanse of sand -
our life is never what we planned
Yet graciously accepting all
we answer every spiritís call

and on and on until the end
when life begins again
