Always A Gift



Always a gift,

perhaps unlooked for -

barely understood,

it can slip unnoticed

into our lives,


catching us unaware.

Our spirits are lifted;

buoyed up

when it washes through us

like the first

clean breeze of Spring —

and takes our breath away -

sweeping us away

like the wave

that knocks us down;

pulls us under,

tumbles us every which way.

and then draws back

with a sigh

and a gentle kiss.

Nourishing our souls,

love gives our lives meaning

while setting our hearts aflame.
