My Brother and My Guide

You came to me, took my hand and led me into fields of light.

There I knelt before you, kissed your hand and I shared all that I am.

You smiled at me, and then I understood what is true and what is not.

I am ready for a brother and a guide, and I asked for you to come.

“It is time,” you said, “cast aside your life and follow where I lead.”

It is time! It is time! It is time you said to me, to follow where you lead.

I agree that it is time, and I am ready to follow where you’ll lead.

Yes I will follow where you’ll lead, for you are my brother and my guide.

Because I know you when I hear you, and I see you with my eyes.

In your presence, happily I and the world do drift farther and far apart.
