Here’s the original text for the poem:

why fear this moment

when no thoughts come

at last I lie naked

in the arms of experience

why fear this moment

when no words come

at last I find rest

in the lap of silence

why fear this moment

when love finds itself alone

at last I am embraced

by infinity itself

why fear this moment

when judgment falls away

at last my defenses

fail to keep intimacy at bay

why fear this moment

when hope is lost

at last my foolish dreams

are surrendered to perfection

As usual, the emphases and the repetitions in the poem reading are my literary liberties as are
the title additions.
