It is Love
It is Love
By Tony DeLorger © 2012
It is love that imbues my mind,
with a gentle warmth, reminding me,
that I am held, I am safe and I am here,
alive with possibility, enthused with hope.
It is love that nurtures my heart,
surrounds me with a quiet peace,
a serene and surrendered will,
that awakens me to the potential
of all I can hope for, all I can dream.
It is love that gives meaning to this journey,
to these souls who walk by my side,
touch my heart and enliven my step,
so I may see the light within even the darkest place.
It is love that beckons me to accept myself,
with all my folly and arrogant inflexibility,
that so often leads me to pain.
It is love that soothes me when I fail life,
when my misguided thoughts,
bring me to the harsh realities of truth,
and I lose what I falsely believed to be mine.
But it is you, who bring me love,
give of yourself to me,
have faith that I am worth fighting for,
so the light within me can burn brighter.
It is you that heals me,
gives me strength to carry on,
and to open my heart.
Together, life is right, in balance,
and we are nourished.
