Love is Never Lost

Message Theresa Paulfranz

For lovers to dance together is one kind of lesson in love.

For lovers to dance at a distance from each other is also a lesson in love.

Nurturing my Broken Heart

I do not know how long it will take

My heart is broken and has suffered deep loss

I ache for an ageless grace

To mend from the pain in which I toss

I am busy with the outer questing of life

But my Inner love matters are not prey to a thief

I will not lament my inner heart pain

I will wrap my arms around my grief

There is a realm where such grief is not felt

Where mortal matters are far below

For the long view I tighten my belt

And reach for things I can not yet know

My distant beloved may meet another

I can imagine her good and strength

She may nurture him and I recover

I will with open heart conquer at length

To give away that which I most love

For the good of he who is my heart's treasure

For this goal I reach beyond and above

For he is my love beyond earth's measure

My mind knows I can not love and lose

I bow to know good is served

I will win in the end beyond this bruise

I will inherit long term what I deserve

For transient good and all that turns to dust

Shall not clip my wings that fly beyond mortal happenings

I shall transcend and conquer want and lust

I will give my love away and see what letting go brings

Love in the loneliness sinking deep within

I will slowly sink for I can not climb

In love I will lose but inwardly win

For it is non-possessive love that is most sublime

I am a hippy that never dropped out. I have held on to impossible idealism and will not give up. I think the human race is a ticking time bomb and we are at the last tick. So what is the good of slow careful pragmatism that allows time for it all to (more...)
