Love’s healing power

When you can forgive
all that still clings to you from the past
the way thistles and cockleburs
cling to your clothes
while wandering in the fields of the world
you will emerge into a present moment
that is already filled with music.

When you stop worrying
about the future
you will become such a joyful
and laughing nuisance
that love will come very close to you
and begin combing you
into the beauty
of the beloved’s flowing hair.

When you can finally forgive
every wound your mind drags around
as if it were caused by others
only then
will the heart be free
to truly begin to sing of love
