A lovely view of heaven, but I'd rather be with you
Last night I dreamed of a blue moon,
Permeating me with her most blessed grace.
Looking up in awe at her, I was taken into heaven,
Shown the other worlds,
And revealed the mysteries of creation.
Could there ever be anything as magnificent?
Is it even possible to imagine
Wanting anything more than this?
It was then that I was offered a choice:
To remain here, to dance with the moon in heaven forever,
Infused with the divine presence and its endless beauty.
Or just one moment with the beloved one,
Holding her, touching her hair,
And entering into union inside such sweetness.
The moon said, “Choose carefully,
For everything in this world is awaiting your decision.”
I am hopeless!, oh moon, there is no choice to make.
I have drunk the wine of the beloved
And will trade everything of this world to touch her.
All known and unknown heavens,
All known and unknown universes,
All known and unknown gods and goddesses,
And every blue moon from now until eternity,
For just one moment with the beloved,
gazing into her eyes, and merging my heart with hers.
I am a yogi of separation and union,
Forever following the beloved around the moon,
Practicing the yoga of a broken open heart.
The most graceful blue moon that has ever been –
beyond words, beyond time, beyond space,
the purest of all divine revelation.
In my dream, I was offered
The most lovely view of heaven.
But I’d rather be with you.
