Jesus, in the Christian Gospels, embodies the timelessness, the welcome of Love. This Love welcomes, so to be welcomed, Its nature being reciprocal. She looked at me, she asked, "Would you like to dance?". Not at first did I say "Yes". She danced. I shyly wanted to. And I did not want her to dance alone. So, I danced, we danced together, the distance between us no more. I am glad I danced, we danced, that she welcomed me, so us, to dance. "Yes" to "Yes". So is Love. Welcomes and waits welcome, in return. Love, being Love, goes first, and is so patient, seeing Heaven planted inside our hearts long before our minds can bear the glory of such truth. So, did he not say, "Come to me, all you who toil and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. And you will find rest for yourselves"? Yes, Love, Love welcoming Love. Only Love sees Love, and from the seeing arises the invitation to love.

Words, take her with you Let her rest in your rhyme Words, take her away Somewhere be on time
Words - ease her breathing Lay her softly on the floor There, let her linger And listen like ever before
Leave her windows uncovered at night And fill her room with the city lights As they illuminate the sky It reminds her of the people outside Cause she won't sleep unless she heals her loneliness
Walk with her beneath the tree tops Create new paths and memories Show her how the sunlight Glances through the gaps between the leaves
Words, help her change the world In only one verse Tell her to reach for the stars And to always put love first
Leave her windows uncovered at night And fill her room with the city lights As they illuminate the sky It reminds her of the people outside It reminds her of the people It reminds her of the people It reminds her of the people outside
