It cannot speak
cannot see or hear
No feeling or form
It moves through the universe,
But it never leaves my soul
It has no name
but knows me well
it makes no sound,
But explodes in every human heart,
it is the beginning and the end
the lost and the found
the discovery and burn.
It is in every thought of every day,
It crosses and straightens,
It eats nothing but feeds everything
It curses not but many swear upon it
It sticks like glue and slips too easily away
Without cost it is the dearest of all
Giving strength to the weak, it
brings the powerful to their knees.
To give love,
To take love. The love of life,
The sights and the sounds and the smells
the feels and the tastes of love.
The least and the greatest of all gifts
Both taken and given.

Let your love look both ways, to what is and what might have been.
Fill the gaps with the time we have, as precious as it is.
