The Streets of a Giving Heart

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


In the warmth of loving arms,

life resides is blissful wonder,

and without doubt or question,

thoughts like birds released,

explore a world polished

to a mirror reflection,

images of deepest love,

imbued in every blade of grass,

every sunset sky,

every billowing cloud.

Love becomes everything,

searching out the good,

acknowledging compassion,

and imbibing the sweet thoughts of dreams,

the fantasy of whims alive

and the loving hearts of selfless souls,

in every quarter of life.

Love drives the soul to speak of truth,

to consider the gifts of fruitful life,

and the bounty of sacrifice

within the honour of thought and action,

the step of responsibility for our kind,

for the downtrodden,

the weak and infirm.

Love at its core sees nothing of human wants,

it just manifests in heart,

in intent and action,

to radiate from loving relationships,

as a beacon of hope and possibility.

From you, I take this gift,

and within me, reflect my world

into the course of others.

We two, in unbridled passion,

score the earth,

mark our world

with the power of giving,

the experience of being,

together,

within the womb of love,

the nurturing folds of life.

With you,

on the streets of a giving heart,

we remain.
