The heart that beats



Do you have a heart
That beats the same way as mine?
Do you have the eyes
That only see me
The way my eyes see you?
Do you have a mind
That never roams
Hangs on to the object of love
That is me?

Do you love me the same way
As I love you?
Does your love for me
Is for yourself
For mutual reciprocation
Or for the object of love
That is me?

Is your love at a physical level
With the mind steering you
Your emotions and passions
Or beyond it
At a level, you yet to know?
Have you gone beyond you
And completely lost in me
To explore me, fathom my love for you
Or still in the grip of passion and infatuation?
Does your love make you complete
Or hinders your journey
Towards me, love and eternity
How can you enter into the kingdom of love
Unless you go beyond yourself
Body and mind
To completely identify with me
The object of your love?
