My Gratitude Flames

My Gratitude Flames



Thorns die,

Roses live.

Hate dies,

Love lives.

Desire dies,

Aspiration lives.

The human in me dies,

The divine in me lives.

My gratitude-flames

In the Heart of God

Never shall die.

Eternally they breathe,

Eternally they sport,

Eternally they manifest

The Supreme,

My Supreme.
