Treasuring

© by Jay Harden


Such an easy thing to do,
Me treasuring you.
Such an easy thing for free,
You treasuring me.

Simple gifts we loving bring
Clear our hearts and let us sing.
World applauds the goddess, king
Alive in me and you.

My pleasure comes as I watch you
And in your fire delight.
Seeing, I remember well
How limitless our light.

I’ve learned from this a law, my love,
Across the universe:
We see outside what is within —
Our best from loving first.
