I Love, I Love

Love, love, love, love!
This is the source
Of inspiration-light
And aspiration-delight.

I Love, I Love

Where borders have been ravaged
and you have been flung far beyond
the core of home,
touch your heart and say,
I love, I love.

When you have become a skeptic,
a non-believer in the game and
in yourself, it’s most precious cargo,
touch your heart and say,
I love, I love.

When all your actions weep with indecision
and mind becomes an enemy
which can no longer console,
touch your heart and say,
I love, I love.

And even if love is a sour notion.
(which will be the truth),
Let it take you beyond inconsolable brooding,
beyond a seemingly irrevocable loneliness,

until you once more believe
in the ease of yourself,
in the light of your being,
in the I love, I love, I love.

– Bhikshuni Weisbrot.
