Remember

Your longing is
a sweet gypsy
wandering around looking for someone
to sing with.
Your wanting is a nomad
roaming in search of grass and water for his animals.
Dear friend:
You may go to far away regions wherever
your dream wants you to go;
but remember to come back to your center, more often;
Remember to come back to the center
Remember to come back to the center
Where the mirror can reflect your true self.
Remember
to come back to the center.
