How Tender

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


How tender your gaze,

alive with unspoken truth,

pleading eyes let hearts reveal,

the stirring emotions

of a soul surrendered.

In love serenity permeates life,

dulls the harsh edges

and uplifts the will of right,

the path of contentment

and the joy of being.

How delicate your touch,

alive with meaning and intent,

exploring flesh and mind

in the beauty of expression,

the rapture of melding hearts.

In love hurt falls away,

a lost and lonely experience,

a homeless and sad regret,

alive in a lower world,

a distant past.

How joyous the sharing,

of hearts devout in life,

accepting of the gift of being

and together finding meaning

in each others soul.

In love, life is found.
