“Come As You Are”

November 6, 2012


I quietly entered the room,

Knowing you’d be there.

You invited me to sit . . .

To be comfortable,

And I sat down on the wooden bench

In the back,

Near the door . . .

“No,” you said.

“Come sit here”

And you invited me to the table

In the most beautiful, sacred space

Reserved for those you want

To be close to . . .

“Wow,” I thought

And hesitated,

But you asked again

And were so welcoming.

It was lit by candle light,

And refreshment was served

From the finest vessels . . .

And set with the best linen.

I sat at the table,

Feeling at once in awe

And special.

You smiled lovingly and said

“you are special, my dear one.”

I gave you my heart.

You filled mine

With your eternal love.
