Wake of the Infinite

wake003

 

DETAILS:

I shall not sleep tonight,
for I shall attend the
wake of the Infinite
the vigil held for the one
forever dying inside us.

However, I do not go in mourning,
nor do I wish to share sorrow
or bond in grief.

I go because
the one forever dying
is the one forever rising.

The one who chooses today
despite all yesterdays,
the one who smiles
despite all demise,
the one who sings at dawn
despite the deepest,
most fearsome dreams.

I shall attend the wake of the Infinite
so I may also learn how to die,
and yield to this river moving through me
nourishing my constant rebirth
into greater and greater clarity.
