alarm clock

Don't come near me while I sleep
talking your B*ddha sweet 
that stings so bad when I wake up
in a wait for the game to stop again

Alone in a safe corner 
to die less afraid even when hurt
friendly faces come and go 
smiling their eyes out of the wait 

And again the clock stops 
our soothing smiles
for another night to thank
a soft spot 
blurry yet
feeling like earths and heavens
are tenderly in love with us all
until we see it to be light and true


“Sometimes, visualize that your heart is a brilliant ball of light. As you breathe out, it radiates rays of white light in all directions, carrying your happiness to all beings. As you breathe in, their suffering, negativity and afflictions come towards you in the form of dense, black light, which is absorbed in your heart and disappears in its brilliant white light without a trace, relieving all beings of their pain and sorrow.”

Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
