The Immediacy of Love
Hurt, Confusion, Worry, Emotion, Tears
the words that too often interfere with the more important
Compassion, Peace, Giving, Knowing, Freedom
when all is right with the world and we know truth is freeing.
I stand before you today
with tears, a sobbing unlike any
only real, flowing, uncertain.
I think I know what love is,
and it isn’t happiness, or sweet notions,
there isn’t always a rainbow, a soft landing,
the world continues no matter how much loss
plays a role in finding our soul.
Frightened, Sad, Conscious, Anger
yet that last piece is so unsure,
where to deliver the blow, the reality of loss,
only the calm serenity of
I am a mess, and I can see you now,
I want to wipe away your tears,
I want to hold you,
I want to glance inside your world
I want you to find me again,
I want, I need,
My heart is real at this moment. I feel.
I know that freedom is letting you go,
They tell me that is love,
then why is it impossible to imagine,
life without you.
What means strength when love is defined.
