Not Touch Alone

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Not touch alone,

nor eyes searching,

not questions answered,

nor lips to speak,

not words of comfort,

nor problems solved,

but when life turns,

there is solace in knowing,

that you are there, regardless,

without action, or intent,

just there to shoulder

the weight of contentious paths,

that wear away our resolve,

our patience and strength.

Not miracles of thought,

nor commands of change,

not palms of silver,

nor sacrifice completes,

not delusions of truth,

nor an epiphany of lies,

just a gentle caring,

a knowing ally,

a support unencumbered,

without payment or qualm,

soul to soul,

in the freedom of expression,

limitless, and without bounds.

Love wears many clothes,

none so complete as in understanding,

and acceptance.

True love never goes on holiday,

it remains steadfast,

always there when its name is called.

      I like this a great deal. There is much to be said for "just a gentle caring, a knowing ally, a support unencumbered," Quite lovely.

      Sharing.
