To the Virgin at Heart

To the Virgin at Heart
O magical one, honored virgin at heart
Look not at your past with fear and shame
But joy at the path you have walked
You, chosen, a light in dark corners
A quiet escape in a violent world
Take comfort in your journey
Fear has no more power over you
A future awaits
Love enfolds you, unreserved
Wisdom visits your dreams
You have left your past behind
Today’s sun warms your skin
Tomorrow holds the trumpets of revolution
Speak in our silences
Move in our stillnesses
O magical one, honored virgin at heart
You are peace
