Flame of Intention
If there was a way to make you happy, I would.
I would sing by the Fire every evening and hope you’d be there listening.
I’d write out the reasons you deserve happiness
with a stick in the dried ditches of the Plains.
I’d sing Elton John songs persistently in the car
channeling your happiness of the past.
I could dress up in all the most brilliant costumes
making a fool of myself to the rest of the city.
(I already do.)
I’ll drive around town with my windows rolled down,
singing from the depth of my heart
sending fire into the air.
You know, beautiful people do not always have beautiful souls
but I believe yours may be the most beautiful blue soul in the land
And I see that those who deserve happiness shall have it.
In reality, We are not hopeless creatures–
there is always a way to create happiness for others in some way
with thoughts, rituals, writing, or public appearance
so that when those sad eyes fall upon You, bright light,
their hearts fill with a hopeful Fire
a desire to feel zest for life again.
And that future happiness may well be inspired by You, dear soul,
so go out and create smiles with your tone of voice,
with the energy you manifest each morning,
with the molecules you consume.
Feel with your whole soul,
feed and fulfill your body with Earth,
feel the Flame of intention
that will always save something.
