After the show is over

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

Non-threatening relationship

With family and friends,

Not necessarily those whom I

Attempted to develop

Meaningful relationships with, here,

In the necessarily heavy atmosphere

Of matter.

 

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.
