Kirtan lover

I love you so much

when your soul calls to me

you have a truthful spirit

that speaks of devotion

and it sets my own yearning free

You have such a heart

It’s not hard to imagine

it was easily bruised from the start

because it is the tender kind

that is open, that is wild

that is thus able

to make meaningful art.

You are more special

than any one

you are the core

essence of us all

but housed in one beautiful


You keep changing

for the better

and your love affects me


so I’m so grateful

that you give your love to me

since it makes me want

to keep staying

and by echoing the sound

of your music

I too

keep praying.

Your song-body

is a home

in which I feel

cradled and no longer


So please

keep singing
