You Are Blessed - Poem by Eric Micha'el Leventhal

You are blessed
to have been ignorant of your own beauty
until now.

For if you had known of it,
if you had allowed yourself
to feel and open to this light,

captivated and contented,

you would have lost all interest in the things of this world,
and our shared existence would be infinitely darkened
by the shadow of your absence.
