Praying with Fringes 02/05/16 – To be free of shame

Oh, to be deeply naked
Gregory Orr

Oh, to be deeply naked
And still see love
In the beloved’s eyes.
To be free of shame.

Was there anything
More wonderful?

How long did it last?
Maybe only a moment;
Maybe it was a dream.
We were afraid
To feel such joy.

Still, it changed us,
And for once we knew
We belonged in the world.
