My Cup Runneth Over

Written by on September 3, 2017 in Poetry and Song, The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

My cup runneth over…
Divine Love, expand my cup

Expand the cup of my willingness to receive
Broaden my mind to ponder truth
Sharpen my ears to hear your voice
Awaken my eyes to see your presence
Strengthen my legs to walk your path
Sweeten my tongue to speak with kindness
Temper my pride to listen deeply
Widen my arms to embrace the weary
Extend my hands to those in need
Straighten my back to take a stand
Move my heart to compassion

   Expand the cup of my being
So that I resemble Love incarnate
A little more each day

My cup runneth over with all your good…
Divine Love, expand my cup

About the Author

About the Author: Greetings, fellow dreamer, and welcome! I’m Demian Yumei, author, singer/songwriter and artist activist. Some of my creative projects are a CD of healing music, “For the Sake of Love” and a children’s book on the interconnectedness of life, “Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes” published by Illumination Arts. Currently, I’m in the process of creating podcasts for my book series on covert abuse. My commitment is to the creative process especially as it relates to the healing journey. Whether I’m singing at a vigil for asylum seekers, memorial for political activists or sitting around a table sharing tea and conversation with friends who just want to talk heart to heart, I am always deeply moved by the human spirit to love and live with authentic beauty. Thank you for being here, for reading my posts and/or listening to my podcast. There’s much to share, much to create and the journey has just begun! Meet you on the path. .
