Gatherers of Light

Poetry

A poem/song by Abhi.

The Dankar Monastry sitting by the lush meadows and a glorious sunset

In that stillness
Beyond the heartbeat
Where the moonlight
Meets the Sun.
In that silence
Where we dance alone
With our Beloved One.

We are gatherers of light
Travelers in this life
We are gatherers of light
And we’re dancing home.

By the gentle rolling river
By the ocean wild and deep
Many changes
Many dangers
As we’re waking from this sleep.

We are gatherers of light
Travelers in this life.
We are gatherers of light
And we’re dancing home

No matter how your heart’s been broken
How deep the valley
You have crossed
The door is ever open
The way back home is never lost.

Come on down to that river
Where the tide of Love is strong
Come on down to that river
To the ocean-going song.

We are gatherers of light
And I know we’ll keep on shining
Through the days and ways of darkness
Wherever we may roam.
We are gatherers of light
And we’ll keep the fire burning
Burning bright with love
To guide our way back home.

In that stillness
Beyond the heartbeat
Where the moonlight
Meets the Sun.
In that silence
Where we dance alone
With our Beloved One.
