Anyone I have loved in my life, I still
Those who have passed on I still Love
Those who did not love me back I still Love
Those with whom I shared Love but parted
I still Love.
Those with whom there is distance I still Love.
The sensations are active in my being though they may
not ever know it, but once they did.
For all my life I have been free to express my Love
Even if those I was loving were not
I understand that it is difficult to love
Amongst hurt, betrayal, disappointment
The heart wishes to close off and protect itself
take shelter and find all the reasons not to Love.
It is natural for this to occur.
But Love is wild and unruly
It cannot be rationalized by the mind.
You will see if you dig deep under the pain of the relation
It is still there
A flame that flickers- forever once it is lit.
Of course we all relish in the volcano of Love
And suffer when it becomes an ember
hot coals that remain as remembrance of the
the mighty fire.
We could linger on the sorrow of that
Or we could hold the memory of the sweet and mighty
roar of the knowing of free flowing Love in our being
and thank the Universe for the
opportunity to become acquainted
with the Bliss of Love.
I prefer to hold the memory
to the light and get down on my knees
in gratitude that I have known Love.
