This is the second guest post poem by Bonnie Lamont. The first was the unbearable lightness of being.

This is a guest post from Bonnie Lamont Rose. Bonnie lives in Bend Oregon. Her life has been about seeking what’s true and real in a world that insists on remaining a mystery. This search for her is a continual process of pealing away layers from the onion we call ego and has included periods of beating herself up, then finding peace, and then starting all over again in, thus far, endless cycles! Ultimately she finds truth revealed in loving the ugly, the beautiful, and the hard to take suffering of the world.

To LOVE, Manifest

Why do YOU continue to walk with me, along this road

strewn with sorrow and suffering – me a complete stranger,

resisting YOUR benevolent offerings of LOVE

at every turn?

YOU come to me as from a dream,

a forgotten dream of long ago…

a dream of deathlessness,

cast into a world where death alone has proven real.

When hope was alive, I suffered.

YOU said YOU would return, and I believed,

for much too long. Now these eyes are dim with sorrow

and respond uneasily to the blinding light of such radiance.

Yet my heart will not be stilled! It seems to know

what I know not. It dances to a tune

I rarely hear. It calls to me, through YOU,

whose heart has listened and ears have heard.

Have YOU really kept YOUR loving promise to return,

after so many lifetimes in darkness and fear?

Or, my own TRUE LOVE, was it I,

wandering alone and confused,

who failed to keep my word?

YOU promised to seek me endlessly,

and I, through my mustard seed of faith,

have kept the search alive.

NOW, through this mutual act of Compassion,

The circle of LOVE is once again complete.
