But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.
At night I dream that you and I are two plants
that grew together, roots entwined,
and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth,
since we are made of earth and rain.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself, Love possesses not nor would it be possessed: For love is sufficient unto love.
Let us be like Two falling stars in the day sky. Let no one know of our sublime beauty As we hold hands with God And burn Into a sacred existence that defies – That surpasses Every description of ecstasy And love.
Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is.
In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you. Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
It is fish,
And followed me.
you might not have been my first love
but you were the love that made
all other loves seem
