Leave to the night

'Don't go back to sleep,' Rumi pleads. Awaken to the day, to your heart, loving and life. Life and love have so much to share, but sharing means you too must engage in the conversation. So much awaits, don't go back to sleep. And sweet mercy, to awaken with such hunger, excitement and abandonment, that when others, the world, my own negative thinking says that I can't do it, too great a risk, to throw my hands up like a child and squeal,

"I would love to kiss you."
" The price of kissing is your life."
Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
"What a bargain, let's buy it."

Leave to the night the sleep and its dreams, they are the door calling us forth into the day. Don't go back to sleep.
