From my heart to yours
Thank you to the men who have seen me –
In moments of terror and fear
During sweet love and surrender,
At times when I needed to be called out
And in my wholeness and aliveness.
Thank you for the times you have not seen me,
Reminding me to seek support from women.
Thank you to the men who have loved me –
Even when I have been less than lovable,
When I have been my shining best,
Whilst I was avoiding you
And whilst I was loving you.
Thank you for the times when you have been unloving towards me,
A nudge for me to appreciate your love and my own love.
Thank you to the men who have held me –
During the many tears I have cried
Whilst I experienced orgasm after orgasm,
When I fell into blissful silence
And as support to remind me of who I am.
Thank you for the times when you have been unavailable to me,
Serving me to be available to myself.
Thank you to the men who have brought masculine presence –
In the face of storms and craziness
To restore my feminine flow,
During the emotional meltdowns
And to complement my feminine radiance.
Thank you for the times when your masculine was less empowered,
Supporting me to use my own inner masculine.
Thank you to the men who have acknowledged me –
And been unconditional in your giving,
When you have met me without expectation or demand
With the strength of your masculine gifts
Penetrating into the very core of who I am.
Thank you for the times when you have ignored me,
Reminding me to pay attention to myself.
I am deeply grateful for the wonderful gifts I have received from men.
You have brought blessings into my life
With your presence, your strength, your awareness.
I cherish the interplay of masculine and feminine dynamics –
The depth of unravelling and feeling is a powerful teacher.
For men everywhere: I love you and the gifts you bring!
