Mary Magdalene’s Song

Mary Magdalene sang

My Beloved, my own, you are mine and I am yours:
no beginning, never ending —
our love fills the world with radiant light;
we are subsumed, there is no you, no me:
only love and light in eternity.

We are nothing: no-thing — and we are everything.
All in all; no separation, no alienation:
One.

Our joy expands throughout the cosmos;
lighting the stars, encircling the planets —
traveling to the farthest reaches of the sparkling nebulae.
There is nothing, there is everything.

My Beloved, my own, you are mine and I am yours:
your love causes my heart to beat,
your spirit gives breath to my body,
your gaze lifts my soul to the heights.
There is no you, no me: only love and light in eternity.

I trip, I stumble, I fall into the abyss —
drunk with love, intoxicated by desire:
you are life, death, All in All.
I am yours, you are mine.

We are nothing, we are everything.

We are one.
