Rainer Maria Rilke - God Speaks to Each of Us

God Speaks to Each of Us 

God speaks to each of us before we are, 

Before he's formed us then, in cloudy speech, 

But only then, he speaks these words to each 

And silently walks with us from the dark: 

Driven by your senses, dare 

To the edge of longing. Grow 

Like a fire's shadowcasting glare 

Behind assembled things, so you can spread 

Their shapes on me as clothes. 

Don't leave me bare.

Let it all happen to you: beauty and dread. 

Simply go no feeling is too much 

And only this way can we stay in touch. 

Near here is the land 

That they call Life.

You'll know when you arrive 

By how real it is. 

Give me your hand. 

- Rainer Maria Rilke
