Timeless in its teaching to show,
Patiently keeping its inner glow,
Yet gently releasing it from its hold,
Never gives up with all its might,
Grows in those who embrace its light,
Like a child in its mothers arms sleeping in the night.
Wisdom and patience attracts the mind,
Blended with intimacy, beauty, and positive emotions,
Love makes for the highest kind,
One that transcends all knowledge,
One that does not fail because of life's follies,
One that many search for but never understand,
The higher meaning that goes hand in hand,
A piercing love that holds lightly yet surrounds,
Whom many think they know,
But have never really found.
To experience it with another who has found this light,
Rare is it found where two share the sight,
Many hold up emotional walls that never come down,
If they could just let them go, dissolve them, all around,
The highest experience could then be found,
When two grow together love transcends all bounds.
