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
anidst the roar of senses,

the provocation and gyrations
for that small, still Presence

that counters every bluster,
colorful, heavy, odious suggestion

indicating I am
a hopelessly alone, utterly lost traveler

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

to turn to in truth and faith
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.
