Two Things

I prayed for in this life:
 †to trust another human †  
††and to be loved by one †  
†† for loving another is easy † †
†† † † all it takes is control
†† † † but to be loved, ah . . .
†† † † that is letting go

† †
When a prayer or two † †
††have been answered † †
††two things enter my mind: † †
† †
†† † What now; †  
†† † am I going to die †  
†† † because I'm finally happy † †
† †
Yet, I'm still alive †  
††living moment to moment † †
††doing the next one or two things †  
††on my daily calendar † †
† †
I have learned †  
††if we believe long enough † †
†† †think upon the truth † †
†† † † †  
†† † †of one or two things repeatedly †  
†† † †they will find us, undoubtedly †  
† †
Everything we desire † †
††is a homing beacon † †
†† †an innate tracking device †  
†† †of charted experience † †
† †
All that we seek † †  
††seeks us in return †  
†† †but the world would † †
†† †have us doubt our self
†  
† †
Keep two things in mind: † †
††be general in thought; † †
††don't box the Universe in † †
† †
What is meant by that †  
††are two more things: † †
†† †imagine it daily; † †
†† †don't imagine how it will come to pass †  
†† † † †
Believe it will †  
††in the Universe's time and way † †
††hold on to that belief for life †  
†† † it took 47 years † †
†† † for mine to manifest † †
† †
I wouldn't change a thing † †
† †
We are planets orbiting dreams †  
††our gravity fields attracting †  
††what we think and feel † †
† †
It's only a matter of time † †
††before the vision in your heart †  
††is where you'll lay your head † †
† †
Two things I promise after that: † †
††you won't die of happiness † †
†† †nor lack for more blessings † †
†† †than you ever dared † †
† †
Then fear holds no power †  
†† even unto the mystery of Death; † †
†† † †for what then should you regret †  
†† † †when you've been granted † †
†† † †the three things you asked † †

†Yes; I said three, but that third
†is between the Universe and me  
†† † †
