Holy Mystery of Love

May I burn like a candle
On the altar of God.

In the mystery of fire.
May I contemplate Your Presence.

In the flame that is Love.
We exist together.

The wax of  my being is consumed,
In sacred transformation.

Enkindled, ignited and enflamed,
I Am sets me free.

Lover and beloved,
Be now All Holy Light.
