"The You That is You is the You That I Love," a mountain journey to the view from above

Updated on November 23, 2013

The You That is You is the You That I Love

A Mountain Journey

The you that is you is the you that I love;

the me that is me is the me that you love.

The view that we view is the view from above;

our lives come from Life for they're lived out of love.

Come join me in a forest walk up to the top,

to where the eagles fly because the mountains stop.

Or do the mountains stop to see the eagles fly,

and forests finally can reach a fresh new sky?

That's better, don't you think, the view from here?

The village human accusations once so near

now seem like little big mistakes so odd and queer,

like new translucent bubbles in a glass of beer,

and petty disagreements simply disappear.

Each village seems to thrive on judging and condemning its own people,

because it thinks that only thus can it protect its little bubble,

but taken from the larger, wiser point of view of Mister Hubble,

the so called "faults" of people are not worth the anguish and the trouble.

What's left is you and me and anyone that's free to see

they have the right to climb this mountain slope with you and me.

The view that we view is the view from above;

our lives come from Life for they're lived out of love.

The me that is me is the me that you love;

the you that is you is the you that I love.

      To see that view

      is to feel that love

      to walk along

      that mountain top

      is to let love breathe

      and never stop

      regardless of those

      who think they know

      what is real

      what is not

      to feel that love

      to see that view

      a beautiful love

      known only to

      the rarest of rare

      the fewest of few
