sometimes in the night

“Love is the revelation of our deepest personal meaning, value and identity. But this revelation remains impossible as long as we are the prisoners of our own egoism. I cannot find myself in myself, but only in another.”
Thomas Merton. Love and Living.

in the night
I fight the
deepening shadows
of sleep disturbed
by fearful stirrings,
silent watchers
standing, waiting
as I fall

but when I awake
and turn to you
I feel your breath
and finding myself anew
I begin
to live.
