Love Never Gives Up
Coming out of the forest
Day was just breaking in the East
For the first time in all my life
I saw Love dawning over the horizon.
I have no words to describe it
For I was just expecting the sun
Which in itself would have been a miracle to me
But along with the sun
Was warmth so true
It radiated to every bone in my body
With heat that comforted my soul
The way its rays touched my face
Soft and tender
Like a kiss
Upon my cold cracking lips
The chill and dampness
From sleeping on the forest floor
Left me, as I moved closer to it
In disbelief, that after all these dark days
I would emerge
And find love
Just waiting there
With open arms
Ready again to enfold me
In his deep unconditional embrace.
I felt dirty after all this time
Living in the forest
Disoriented, too, from wandering in the trees
My sight was poor, my steps unsteady
When he reached out his hand
To help me to the top of the hill
As simple and complex as all of nature
There it was, right in front of me
Flowing through me, surrounding me
How can this love endure all this?
Unless for sure it is true
He looks at me with those eyes
And that smile as if I’d never been gone
Never far at all
I feel I’ve journeyed to hell and back
But long to sink into his arms
Like time had stood still for us
And nothing else mattered
The Universe still held our space in the stars
That bond is eternal
And again, all is as it should be.
The rest is just details.
I've never experienced love like this.
