We Are God

Through loving my lover  
I learn to love myself. 
Through loving myself  
I love god. 
We are all intertwined, 
growing one into another. 
Beloved’s light is shining 
through the eyes of the lover. 
A multitude of form, 
yet one being,  
dancing to the ancient 
rhythm of the thunder, 
to the heartbeat of Earth. 
We are and we are not. 
I am you and you are me… 
And yet we are not, 
we are god.
