Where the desert kisses the cool blue ocean
There I shall meet you
Where the earthly and watery elements merge as one
There I shall sit and wait
Not as a woman who awaits an estranged lover
But as a shoreline that awaits the inevitable
Gently receiving what is hers to receive
My soul yearns to be immersed in the deep waters of your soul
To relieve the dryness of the most barren of deserts
I yearn for a return to Gan Eden for all
For how can I drink while the children thirst?
How can I bathe while the children remain soiled?
For my love is tied with theirs
And their exile, my affliction to bear
So I call you forth from the waters
To rise up and envelop me
To lose all sense of boundary
Just as a wave merges with the sand
In a perpetual dance that transforms the other
I prepare myself by simply being what I am
The still and expecting shoreline
Awaiting the ocean’s eternal consummation.
