When I am with you
I feel like a magician performing his trick
Pulling a golden rabbit from a silken black hat
A musician who plays his song
With cosmic notes from a distant galaxy
You come from the kingdom of 'che'
The land where Gato first blew his saxophone 'ole'
A place where Maradona was prince for a day
A country where eva had her way
I love you, I love you, I love you
Forever, forever, forever
Yesterday, today, tomorrow
Tomorrow, yesterday, today
I love you...
Specially written on commission from Michael, Miami December 20, 2001
From the Author:
I was so moved by the feelings that Michael expressed about his girlfriend who was recovering in a medical clinic from a health problem, and the unique complexity of their relationship that this poem came through me from a higher source.
There are nine stanzas making this poem magical in all respects. Nine is the number of revolution, magic, holography and the great Indian Avatar Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
There are nine muses; Calliope, Clio, Erato, Eutherpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalla and Urania. They are the daughters of Mnemosyne (memory) and Zeus, presiding over the arts and sciences. They signify eloquence and music.
