Now is All We Have

Why do you hold yourself back? Why do you limit that which is limitless? Why do you deny that which is eternal?

If you met me in a dream will you dance barefoot with me at dusk on a warm beach by the light of a bonfire acknowledging within us the energy that creates the universe or will you still hold yourself back?

If I lay dying at your side by some twist of fate, will you hold my hand as I slip away or will still hold yourself back, not recognizing your self in me?

Who will you be for me today? How much of you will you allow me to experience? When is the time to be who you truly are, if not now? When will you lie with me and gaze up at the stars from whence we came and know that we have always been and always will be stardust?

Must you forge the present from the reverberations of the past? When will you at last trust that you know what you have always known? Where have you gone that not even your self can reach you?

Come dance with me the fleeting dance of the mayfly, for we have always been lovers and now is all we have.

This brought me to tears, tears for myself and the one I love. It was a reminder of how much I and the ones I love hold back and miss the absolute beauty and joy of the moment. Jackie
