The Core of Life

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


The depths of tender love derived,

from selfless acts and passion strive,

instil the peaceful bliss of being

and imbue the hearts of angels seen.

In darkness light from inner strength,

on wings of love in flight invent,

the pure and glorious freedom felt,

when hearts are nurtured and all doubts melt.

Tis all a soul can ever wish,

lost hopelessly with a kiss,

with arms so wrapped in warm embrace,

life’s pain and struggle somehow erased.

For love in all its distractions will,

draw us from our mundane ills,

in freedom thoughts and open eyes,

in sharing cancels compromise.

In hearts enriched with loving bliss

a seed is born of nature’s gifts,

to see a world that offers all,

for those who heal with passion install.

What we make of being is ours,

to suck the marrow of life endowed,

to relish love and aspire be,

the seed of love and future see.

For in the end our life’s a gift,

and what we do can only uplift,

in love and harmony we seal our path,

in happiness that love imparts.

Yes to love, harmony, angels, and "the core of Life." A very uplifting poem that suggests to me there is so much more to life than pain, suffering, and the accumulation of stuff. Here's to connecting more to that Light inside and to letting ourselves fly. Peace...Gary.
