An accident on a bridge

8 July 2019 2 Comment(s)

In a splash of a moment
The feared impact
The darkened thick sound

And a knowing:

The feared is here,  it’s happened!

I’m totally awake yet not quite here
Something in me functions perfectly
Almost too perfectly
I know it well but it feels strange
It has a mind of its own
it knows, it acts, it takes the next steps
And from the depth inside
I know I must follow.
I just do.

In the space of the possible ‘other side’
This side vibrates vividly
With life, with love, with so much love

Love feels like a pair of caring arms that lift me
Then another pair
Love sounds like frightened reassuring words
Love buzzes with the energy, with humour, with empathy

In that moment
Love is shocked tearful faces
Love is a caress on my head
a kiss on my lips

In that moment, ‘it’s all OK’ echoes in my head
No matter what comes next, it’s all OK
Moment to moment, heartbeat to heartbeat,
it’s all, always OK.

Nothing matters but love
Nothing exists but love
Nothing ever said or thought
Good or bad
All that matters is love

You know it and so do I
The need to laugh
The need to amuse
even in a sorry state
tells me joy is our mission
Our only mission

In danger and in pain
In the thin veil of in-between states
In the glory of the mundane
Joy is our mission
Love our only purpose
