Because I love love so much, I’m posting one of my favorite love poems for the third time in the hopes that someone, somewhere, will benefit from the reading, whether for the first, second, or third time around. This was first posted in 2014:
I love love; not necessarily just romantic love, but love of all kinds. I love babies, animals, friends, family. I love sunshine, moonlight, stars, trees, flowers. I love oceans, seas, lakes and rivers. I love singing, dancing, laughing, writing, daydreaming, night-dreaming, holding hands, hugging, being happy and seeing others happy. I love God and how he spent so much time talking about love in his Book of Books. Love is the most written about topic in the Bible, and the greatest commandment of all time is “Love one another!”
I’m going to share another of my poems here, and what’s it about? Love of course.
SHADOWS IN THE WIND
Perfect love is fulfillment
in perpetual motion,
seeing with the heart’s eye
that which the mind cannot grasp,
acknowledging the human need
for closeness under all conditions,
realizing that aloofness is a
suit of armor worn by those
who fear perfect love
is beyond their realm,
understanding the merest
reaching out of a heart’s desire,
passion and compassion hand in hand,
longing and belonging heart to heart.
Will it ever be reality
or are we pursuing shadows in the wind?
Will it ever be reality? I’d love to think so.
