Love Has Many Intentions

By Tony DeLorger © 2012

It is not the vanity of secured love that defines us,

rather the service and care in dealing with the trials of life,

the selfless support during illness and emotional anguish,

when love's songs wears the grit of life.

When life's path sours in reverence to a greater teaching,

it is the course of true love that defines itself within a soul,

each touch and thought a testament to a far more profound truth,

a far deeper emotion than the fantasy of infatuation.

Love, above all things, wears a guise of many intentions,

all of which pales before the shadow of selfless and committed love,

the act of sacrifice with no thought of recompense,

where the welfare of self is second.

When the fantasy falls aside, the passion of bodies melding,

there needs to be a foundation on which love can grow,

and it far outweighs all else in depth and possibility,

the resurgence of an open heart, the petals of a soul unfurling.

Within this state of being all expression is achievable,

even physical love takes on a new meaning and path,

the blissful acknowledgement of oneness, empowering,

when the serenity of mind and soul, soars.

In life we have but one accomplishment, to love and to be loved,

and in all truth there is no greater gift in life,

no greater feat nor journey to fulfill,

than the abiding acceptance of an open heart to nurture for its own sake.

      I do believe you know the real meaning of love sir. I don't think I could have put it any better myself.

      Tony, this is such a lovely, beautiful poem full of hope and promise that opens the mind to what can happen when one opens the heart to love. This is what I am trying to teach to a friend and you just gave me the words to give to him. I will share your beauty of love on facebook as a way to tell my friend how I feel about love. Thank you for opening the way for me. Thank you so much, my friend and fellow poet.
