LOVE IS THE ESSENCE OF BEING

Where does love
Come from and why?
Some seek forever…
Some barely try…
While love finds them

We know love’s
Not a luxury…but
The cost can be so high
As necessary as air…
Without, we slowly die

Our spirits know
When they are
Matched…don’t they?
Lives completed
Side by side…
It’s what we need

Responding to:
Love Is A Magic Ray – A poem by Khalil Gibran

Love is a magic ray
emitted from the burning core
of the soul
and illuminating
the surrounding earth.

It enables us
to perceive life
as a beautiful dream
between one awakening
and another.

Kahlil Gibran
