My silent partner

My silent partner                                                                                      

Mercy, my spiritual master;
compassion, my steady companion;

immediate truth, my bottom line;
love, my silent partner

luring me to listen
amidst the roaring senses,

the provocation and gyrations
for that small, still Presence

that counters every bluster,
every colorful, odious suggestion

indicating I am one
hopelessly alone, utterly lost traveler

without home or safe harbor.
Love, my silent partner,

to turn to in faith and truth
and find the way, comforted and led

subtly from this land of shadows
into the bright, perfect Light.

O child of God, listen with all your heart

to the wisdom of your silent partner.
