The Gift- a poem of love
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
Giving love is like cleansing,
each act of kindness and selflessness,
soothing and healing the soul,
bringing it nearer to its own perfection.
Love imbues the hearts of all
who are touched by its course,
its path without direction,
rather radiating outwardly into life.
Intention, even if failed,
carries the purity of love,
and therefore an affect
perhaps not realised at the time.
Love is indestructible,
never-ending and permeating,
often seen to dissipate
when in fact weaving a subtle and inspiring web.
Love lingers like a soft and tender kiss,
the heart filled with promise,
anticipation enlivening the possibilities in life,
the potentials only a soul understands.
Expressing love is a world complete,
and sharing the gift of life.
Love is our greatest feat,
our lesson of humility,
and the greatest accomplishment,
in a world of distraction.
