today is the first time in my life

today is the first time in my life
that I have understood.
It happened under deep stars
chill midnight wind singing
a chorus of silent voices pouring down
my heart a resurrected chalice

have you seen what the stars can do?
their whispers become worlds
listen –
    the eye of your heart knows

I am surrounded by music
            I am music
the music shimmering in my tears
my tears a vast, clear song
my song the midnight sunrise

and I see that there is nothing but gifts
            nothing but freedom
my heart is bursting because yes, I see,
for the first time I understand –
we are here to love
