There is a way that can be lived
An existence, to and fro,
But has no heartbeat, meaning, joy,
No reason for tomorrow.
Then, there's us, life overflowed
Returned and given to the full,
Connection, oneness and delight
Each day to feel fulfilled.
A flow of life and love between
Two hearts in perfect flight,
In peaceful freedom, ebb and flow
Encompassed by God's light.
To live for you, as you for me
In communion of God's love,
We know to breathe is Spirit life
Our hearts both drawn above.
Though physically we are of earth
Our feet tied to the ground,
Our spirits rise as one with Him
Together in Him now.

Poetry From The Heart
Your life and my life flow into each
other as wave flows into wave, and
unless there is peace and joy and freedom
for you, there can be no real
peace or joy or freedom for me. To see
reality--not as we expect it to
be but as it is--is to see that unless
we live for each other and in and
through each other, we do not really live
very satisfactorily; that
there can really be life only where there
really is, in just this sense, love.
