Once There was Union
copyright Lauri Ann Lumby
When I pierce the veil of time and peer across dimensions, it is only Union I know.
Where we were One in heart and mind.
Here we felt safe and our world was made of joy.
Singing the songs of creation.
Making universes with our love.
Then the whole world danced with joy.
We were happy then.
Love holding us together
Until fear tore us apart –
Casting our souls into the Void,
Spitting us out on the other side.
Trembling in our nakedness,
Separate. Alone. Afraid.
Forever cursed to searching for what we once had.
Yearning. Longing. Crying out.
Finding only sorrow in our search.
Temporary distractions and momentary satisfactions.
While holding the excruciating pain of longing in our hand.
Will we ever find our way home to the love we once knew?
I in you and you in me.
One as the Universe intended.
