No Feeling

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.

Rainer Maria Rilke
One day I might be brave and let
happiness befriend me. Then I will know everything
can be trusted to happen
just as it needs to.
I will know that you 
can be overtaken by beauty
and inexplicable peace and
find ways to meet terror
without being devoured by it. Just
know that this is not a secret to keep
but to share: we are all going 
home together.  There is no 
loneliness too vast; each feeling
can become a gateway to what is 
most true, beautiful and final.
