The Blessing of Brothers

Finally
Without warning
The day arrives
For which he has
Longed
     Dreaded
Waiting
     Feared

He
is coming
The other one
The other half

Will a divine union finally occur
Uniting what is separate
Making Whole
What is Divided
Or
Will they tear
Each other
   Themselves
  A   part
Creating further division
That no one
Can repair

Fear grips
One
Both
The Same

That evening
One wrestles
With
The other
The self
The divine
Through the night
Never winning
Never losing
Simply
Struggling
As in life

Same evening
The other
Also struggles
With demons
Within and without
The hatred
Of other and self
Mother and father
The desire
For power and reconciliation
The memory
of what was
The dream
of what could be
Struggling
Preventing him
From moving ahead
To meet the one
Who is both
The other and the same


Sunrise
One feels
Excruciating pain
Wrenched from the past
Brought into the present
A new man
Yet the same
Still the heal grabber
Now the one who struggles

Hasn't that always been the case

Sunrise
One feels
Overwhelming sadness
Rescued from dreams of a future
Never to be
Rescued from the demons of a past
He must relinquish

Both enter
The present
The moment
The potential
For wholeness
Holiness
Reconciliation
With self and other

The sun is high
Reaching its zenith
no more shadow
only purest light

At that moment
This moment
brothers meet

They look
Into each other's eyes
Mirrors

They see
Each other
Themselves
They see
Father
Mother
They see
Fear
Hope

They see
The moment
They seize
Each other
Embracing all that is
Within them
All
That ever was
All
That ever will be
here
In this moment
Within them

All is right
For
All is
As it is

Blessing
Birthright
No longer matter

What matters
Is now
Is them

Embracing
Tears flowing
They cannot let go
Yet
They must
Release
Each other
Each self

For the time has come
For the next step
Together
Alone
Into the unknown

the next moment
Each going
his own way
Each knowing
Now that they
they always be
together
One
Even though apart

Each leaves
Realizing
In that moment
They have finally
Received
The true
Blessing
Birthright

Oneness

Now guiding
Each one
On
Each step
Of
Each journey
Of
Each life

They journey
Has not
Been easy
Till now
Nor will it be
Till then

Yet
It has brought
These two
To the place
They longed for
Yet
Never knew
To
Themselves
Each other
To the oneness
of
Brotherhood
