After the show is over, when I finally leave
The stage of human life; after a
Wild and glorious celebration,
I know that I will collapse into
A long, deep and well-earned,
More or less, sleep.
Then I expect to awaken to
A reunion with loved ones
And learn to adapt to living within
A loving, all-inclusive and
With family and friends,
Not necessarily those whom I
Attempted to develop
Meaningful relationships with, here,
In the necessarily heavy atmosphere
Then I will ask Spirit, if I can find him,
What was it all about;?
If physical reality is a school,
Then what did I learn?
What was I expected to learn?
How was I expected to learn
Whatever, and why?
I always needed to know why.
Spirit tells me – perhaps He tells me now
So He will not have to face me later.
The purpose of physical experience
Is to teach us how to live
In community with all life, as if
We were one, and we are.
