Emptiness felt within my being
Wondering why I feel it here,
“Empty of what”? I ask myself,
How shall this emptiness be filled?
Perhaps renewed feelings of love
Love more deeply for all beings,
Stronger compassion to be felt
For those invisibly passing by.
Eyes wide open, observing what’s here,
So many people conveniently ignored,
Knowing they are not really different
But all fully human, just as I am.
Opening my heart to every being here
No one a stranger, accepting all fully,
Sacred beings, every one of them
Loving them deeply within my heart.
