Short Poems About Life and Love


Hidden Mystery

In the deepest depths of you and me
In the deepest depths of we
Lies the most beautiful jewel
Shining forth eternally

Within that precious jewel
Within that priceless piece of we
Lies a time beyond all time
Lies a place beyond all space

Within that sacred source of radiance
Lies a love beyond all love
Waiting
          Waiting
                    Waiting
Ever so patiently

Waiting for you, waiting for me
Waiting patiently for all to see
The beauty that is you inside of me
The beauty that is me inside of thee

In the deepest depths of you and me
In the deepest depths of we
Lies the love and wisdom
Of all Eternity

Awakening

Bright sun
Bursting forth
Into the dawn
Of a brand new day

Golden rays
Streak across the sky
Blanketing the land
With newfound warmth

Manifold lifeforms
Arise from their slumber
To the infinite possibilities
Of this grand awakening

Infinite choice
Presented to all
With the dawn
Of this new day

Do we choose
To let wounds of the past
And fears of the future
Determine our way?

Or do we choose
To stir and awaken
The limitless glories
Within and around us?

May we transcend
Past and future shadows
To dance with the golden rays
Of the newborn sun

Genesis Revisited

In the beginning was We

We created me
And you and you and all of you

To ask
Who am I?
Who are you?

To sometimes forget
And then to remember
To ask
Who are we?

Mirrors of God

I long to feel again
The majesty, the mystery, the unity
Of you, of me, and of we

Transcending all duality
I long to know the you that is me
Within the greater We

I long to taste this sacred trinity
Without all the filters
Of bias I've built in me

Releasing the fears that bind me
I trust that our hearts will sing
In ever greater harmony

Let us reflect ever more purely
The love dancing in our eyes
Ever so invitingly

Together we can be free
To soar into the depths
Of all eternity

For in the end you and me and we
Are the mirrors of God
Gazing into infinity

Embracing All

Light that lies deep inside of me
Come forth in all thy majesty
Show me thy gaze
Teach me thy ways
That I a better person may be

Darkness that lies deep inside of me
Come forth in all thy mystery
Show me thy gaze
Teach me thy ways
That I a better person may be

Love that lies deep inside of me
Come forth in all thy unity
Let me be thy gaze
Let me teach thy ways
That I a better person may be

Dear friends,

I wrote all of the above short poems about life and love, though I am not the originator of the final one. The first two stanzas of "Embracing All" were recited to me by a wise, wonderful woman in a very powerful dream in my early 20s. The words sank profoundly into my soul — so much so that when I awoke, I found myself moved to share this inspiring poem with others. Many years later, the third stanza came to me while contemplating the interconnectedness of all life.

For those interested in more, you might enjoy translations I made of the first two chapters of "The Way of the Wise" (Tao Te Ching) available here. You can also read an inspiring essay titled "Spiritual Eyes" at this link. And for a list of the most inspiring and transformational essays, books, websites, and more that have profoundly touched me, click here. I hope these short poems about life and love touched and inspired you as they have me. Take care and have a wonderful day!

With sacred love and warm wishes,
Fred Burks for WantToKnow.info and PEERS
