How was it love
When
I rarely
Put myself in your path
To encounter
The warmth
That
Radiated
From
The glow
Of
Your presence

How was it love
When
Without
My awareness
Your wholeness
Became broken
And
I
In oblivion
Failed to sense
That
You
Breathe
No more

How was it love
When
I lost you
Never knowing
That
You
Ceased to cling
To this world
As
It raced
Through its orbit
Around
A star
Whose brightness
Could not
Outshine
You

Hold on

Even

Hurdles are erected

The path

That
Routes
Us
To
The fulfillment
Of
Our
Individual destinies
Which
Are
All
Linked
By
A collective desire
To
Succeed

Learning
To tie my shoelaces
Was
One of the most difficult things
I have had to learn

Measuring

Or

Tying them
Tight enough
To avoid
Tangling myself
In loosened laces
And
Tripping
Falling headfirst
Due to my haste
To complete
The task

Since
I have learned
To tie my shoelaces
The simplicity of it
Makes me wonder
Why
It had been
Difficult
To learn

Because

Loving you
Was not learned
It came
Simply
Without thought
Without trial
And
Its only difficulty
Is trying
To measure it
In adequate portions
So it will never
Run out

Security
Is not assured
By
Padlocks
And
Bolted
Steel doors
Intended
To
Shut out
The dangers
Living
Beyond the borders
Of
Your world

Security
Lays
In the touch
That
Patiently waits
In the tips
Of
Familiar fingers
Until
It is called upon
To lead
A hand
To
Gently soothe
In
Silence
