Come with Me

Come with Me.

Come with me
Come with me
to the Garden of Gethsemane.
Come with me ,
and take my hand .
Here in the Garden of Gethsemane
we will walk
hand in hand .
Come with me ,
Come with me,
to the Garden of Gethsemane
I ask of you: donʼt close your eyes
to sleep .
There is no need to speak
I only need
the simple willingness
of feet ,
and in your heart
I will give you rest.
Just come with me ,
come with me ,
to the Garden of Gethsemane
and I will give you
soothing lather,
of child’s balm

Come with me
Come with me
for the midnight prayer
in the stillness
of the midnight air ,
as moonlight
illuminates our silhouettes
in the Garden of Gethsemane .
Come with me
Come with me ,
each other ,
letʼs not forsake ,
till the early morning breaks.
Come with me .

In the Garden of Gethsemane,  thereʼs a tree
that opens blossoms,
red and white ,
only once at night,
and its’ pods
open down
towards the ground.
I will bring you there
and we will water it
you and I
with my blood,
and with all
of our eternal love .

Come with me,
Come with me,
to the Garden of Gethsemane
and we will travel
to the Gardens of the Tuleries,
and back
to the hanging gardens
of Babylon,
and to that Garden
kept in by walls
of cedar planks,
where we can rest
and finally be free,
And we will wrap our robes
around  the fragrant
cedars that are
crowned with doves,
there, where passionʼs
in the ground,
and itʼs simply
you and I
in purest love .

Come with me
Come with me
to the Garden of Gethsemane
my Love ,
and perhaps
we will also see
Jerusalem bathed in moonlight
and we will water olive trees ,
on mountain slopes ,
with bitter tears ,
while resting on
a sacrificial altar stone.
Come with me
Come with me
for this night I am alone.

Come with me
Come with me
to contemplate
and finally embrace
the Love that flows here
in the Gardens of Gethsemane
my Love.

And when the time comes near ,
that we must part ,
remember
I will always be
residing in your heart ,
here in the stillness
of the Garden of Gethsemane ,
my love .
