What Matters Most

“Please forgive me,” “I forgive you,” “Thank you,” and “I love you”.
(Ira Byoc, ‘The Four Things That Matter Most’)

A greater understanding
Knocks on your door
Every now and then
And when you open the door
You fall, you fall all the way in
Taking a plunge into the depths
Of your loving heart
Oh, no, it is not easy
Tears may be shed
Shedding a light
Into what matters most
The lessons of that moment
The sorrows that may surface
The forgiveness demanded
The clearing and the clarity
It is love, it is love
It is love that matters most
Our shared Spirit

And in that moment
The walls break around your heart
You feel again, you feel again
Such profound meaning
Our relationships carry
A greater understanding
Knocks on your door
Every now and then
So open, open the door
Take the plunge

And when you come to the surface again
Bring what matters most with you
Our shared Spirit
Our Love

line under high with life
