A Love Poem
I’d have you know that love surrounds you. In your deepest despair and your greatest triumphs, you are not alone. Never alone. At times you may not be able to see through your pain and your pride may hide its truth. Yet it is there. If you could but take a peek, you’ll discover you were not once left adrift. Someone’s hand was extended, inviting you to reach. Just reach. It is evident in the kind words of a stranger and the laughter of friends. In the unending willingness of man to help his fellow man. It can arrive, a whisper on a warm breeze or in a torrent of emotion. The good in the world is overwhelming. The simplicity of love is stunning. Its expressions innumerable. It can embrace you in your darkest hour and encourage you to greatness. It is quiet acceptance. You do not need to ask for it. You do not need to feel worthy of it. It is already yours. You are loved. You are love.
