Love

Love

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

Love,
    make me thy
 eternal spring
        ever blooming forth
fragrance divine.. 

Love, 
    let us kindle
sparks of hope,
        though the world
goes dark 
          fading our paths… 

Love, 
       let us keep
memories aglow
        while the cold 
feet of death
             creeps in
    causing ennui..
blurring 
          our vision…

Love,
   let our hearts
open spaces,
                 for all,
the friend
         and the foe…
kindness 
           and care
emnating for all.

Love,
       let our minds
turn crystal clear
          reflecting us
and the world 
                 around…
soulful 
           let us seek
spheres
            where
heavens 
             abide…

Love,
      let our love
not alter
      when faces
and forms 
             change
let the 
         wine grow
stronger
            as years 
roll by…

the passing 
                wind
leaving 
          residues
behind,
           telling  
tales
      of two souls
who met…
