The Enlightened Path - Poem by Edmund Calleja

(From my obscurity came forth a Light
and it illuminated my Path) .

In my listless Heart I carry
A Celestial battered Lamp,
It has been the guiding light
For this romantic weary tramp.

It has led me in the darkness
Of my yearning loveless flight,
It’s been always there to show me
When I was wrong or I was right.

It has given me her counsel
And has never left my side,
It has been a trusted friend
Where my worries I’d confide.

There were times I was unfaithful
And its guidance I didn’t heed,
When the longings of my Heart
I would carelessly exceed.

There have then been days of sorrow
As the Loving seeds I’d sow,
Would then wither in my Heart
As their Love I’d never know.

I would then relight that Lamp
Where my patient Soul is dwelling,
I would then beg her forgiveness
For ignoring her foretelling.

And as Heart and Soul unite
In their eloquent contentment,
We would than thread down the Path
Of our newly found Enlightenment.
