I have made ready a room
Here in my heart
With walls of warmth
and windows of color
towards every side of the cosmos.
Oceans, mountains, and clouds are without,
within- loving and light;
and here I invite you to come,
dear being I love.
Lead me in what you have learned
now you have left your body after so long suffering
and become a heavenly star;
the up-rising in dying!
