To You Of Heavy Heart - Poem by Mike Barrett

Oh you
Of heavy heart
What is it that you seek?

Need you
See it?
Touch it?
Feel it?

Oh you
Of heavy heart
Be not so sad,
Always IT is about you,
Within, without
And around you.

Constantly here.
Constantly loving.

Stop seeking.
Reflect.
Call for ITs Master.

Listen.

Do you not begin
To hear IT from within -
Do you not begin
To sense ITs presence?

Open your heart.
Forget yourself.
Receive ITs love.

IT senses your sincere desire.
IT flows to you.
IT embraces!

Sense this embrace!

The Master is always present.

Thus it is.

Need one seek more?
