THE FLAME IN THE LOTUS

XXXVI.
Before sleep, I raise my face and smile
There it is again-a Light that lights me from within
It shines inside me and carries me up
I am become a river, flowing into sleep
In those moments before I drift
I am so big and so open, yet
I become a nothing of unsurpassing beauty
I am swept into a warm embrace-
I am filled with Light,
I am filled with Life,
I raise my face and smile
And tears sometimes fall on my cheeks,
As I finally fall asleep
A glow on my pillow.
