Another New Year’s Eve


I am ready
when a voice has spoken,
a path opened its arms,
ready to resolve and to follow.

And if not I am ready to be still,
and more still yet,
to wait,
to shed my wants and fears,
my wishes and words, and even
the words I have for the silence
and for you,
until not I but you speak
and I follow.

And when I have resolved,
and I am sure of myself,
and my wishes reappear
in the costume of devotion,
help me to return
to be still and listen again.
Another New Year’s Eve.

I yield to you fully,
and ask you only
to help me to return
and to return
and to return,
to be still and ready
each day.
