There were days when she played
There were days when she cried
Her emotions have bled her but she wasn’t ready to die
She wondered for years why the pendulum must swing
To the left, to the right, her longing for her king
Where is he, what happened, where did she go wrong?
Each and every day, is she bored yet with this song?
But back then, she wouldn’t consider the simple, the light.
No, she judged every man, always a bit “off” in her sight
Where would she find him? Is it too much to ask?
Just one man to “see” her without her past
But her idea about herself was so profound
She hadn’t the ability to stand on the ground
She lived in the past, in the future, but never NOW
And if you told her you loved her, she angrily asked how
Would she ever grow or does she even want to know why
Her own thoughts have caused this lifelong sigh…
But her story is a good one, she wanted it that way
Confusing emotions no longer obfuscate her day
I watched and knew her, saw her come alive
She sat still in her silence and engaged her inner eyes
Acceptance and ease began to lighten her load
She judges no one now seeing her life unfold
Diamonds and other talents come to her in a dance
And the sighs turned to joy in her new innocence.
She wanted me to tell you that guilt isn’t real
Don’t buy it, don’t believe it, and you’ll finally feel
A peace and a grace that was always there
More than a woman, now a spirit too, ever aware…
I haven’t met you yet, but you’ve been in my dreams
You’re not so far away, or so it seems…
note - while I titled this “She danced,” not only the title but all the content could interchangeably be “He...”; within non-dual awareness, can there be a she distinct from he?
