Waking the Sleeping Beauty

Each of us longs for love
It is our secret hidden desire
Not just ordinary love
But the kind of love
That opens doors
That have been closed for so long

We dare not even dream of it
In this cruel and mediocre world
Bereft of its wildness and beauty

We long to receive and give it
We long to walk in it and dance in it
It’s what we are made for
This innocence and openness
It’s the fulfillment of human destiny

I speak of that kind of love
Pure, true, honest, and open love
That lies deep in each of us
Waiting to be awoken

If ever there was a time
To awaken the beauty
That sleeps within
It is now.
