0129 Awakening [16 December 1997]

Do I hear.
Reaching from somewhere,

I had not known
That this place existed.
Little had I ever known of it.

Why now
Does it
Ask for my attention?

Lost was I,
Found I am.

All because
Of this echo.
This whisper
From my past.

It spoke of love,
It spoke of love
For me.

Was there such a time?
Why do I not remember
The crying
That caused my demise?

The crying,
Oh why
How long have I forgotten?
Where have I been?

The echoes
Called to me today.
And I was awakened
From a deep slumber.

Now I know
From whence they came.
And why they were so persistent
In helping me to remember.

For you,
I remember.
The love of her heart,
I remember.

You know me not,
Yet I know you,
And now,
I know myself.

Lost was I,
I was found
By the spirit of love.

She reached
From heaven above,
To touch me,
To help me remember.

To help me remember
To help you remember.
Hearts are not strong,
But they are full of love.

And love is their strength,
As I am your strength.
The echoes called,
And I remembered.
