For the 14th
Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche
Sweetest Friend …
Why did you leave so suddenly
without a backward glance?
No time to say goodbye
to watch the sun rise one more time…
Never again will I search for something
unaware that I already have it
or ask questions not believing that I
have the answer…
You will watch for us in early light,
in evening shadows of high mountain valleys,
in lowland lotus ponds
where cranes and wild birds gather.
There we will find you,
teasing with that fine touch,
the great gift you bring as you
stride the stars among the curving arms of the milky universe
and slowly take in galaxies and kalpas of lifetimes long past
to keep that balance of joy and beauty
that is only yours to give away.
