Way of Sadness

You chose this life, this path, sweet one;
You chose this way of sadness
so that you could never forget.
It brings you closer to me.

Treat your dis-ease as a friend:
Your companion, your guide.
Do not try to escape it
Instead, come, more deeply in:
Live it, become it.

Don’t try to forget!
I am where love embraces;
Where pain heals.

I make you hurt so that you will never sleep:
That your heart will hear even the softest whisper.

Why do you fight your tears? – They are beautiful!
