in the first instant of your being
I laid a burden on you,
which, if you now accept it
by the power of my grace,
can be for you as light
as a billowing cloud.

You see, I desire your arms
to be my arms, open
wide for all in need of
forgiveness and compassion.
your legs to be my legs,
carrying you to where
there is a need
for your special gifts.
your hands to be my hands,
creating beauty to inspire
and delight, your fingers
to be my fingers, pointing
to the paths of truth and
reconciliation, your heart
to be my heart, flowing
with love like a fountain
over a dry, brittle,
cynical world.

You, perhaps, are confused
that I call this burden light.
It can be light because
burdens are made heavy
by anxiety over control
and results. But I tell you

The Spring of My One True Love

If we were having coffee my love, I would sit next to you and tell you how much I have missed you. I have many questions, but seeing you now, they just don’t matter.

All I want to do is hold you and kiss your mouth, your cheek, your hands…your wrists….I want to run my fingers through your hair ever so gently and just take in the moment of seeing your beautiful face after such a long time.

My heart is pounding as a love suppressed for far too long awakens from a seemingly endless winter upon seeing the beautiful spring of my one true love again. I have so much to say; so much to tell you. But I find myself in a whirlwind of emotions…The only words that emerge from the storm—the only words that matter are—“I love you so very much.”

Love Song

The words to the song at the link above fit well with this piece of writing.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you how much I love the theme song from Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet. The beauty of the melody and the story it represents brings back many joyful memories of my own love story.

Whenever I hear it, I stop whatever I am doing and just let the melody wash through me. The song reminds me of the power and passion of young love, but not just any love—that one true love that endures through eternity. Feelings of boundless love and compassion well up inside me and I feel like I’m going to burst. Then sometimes tears come as I think of the anguish the two lovers felt in having suddenly lost a piece of themselves that cannot be replaced—a feeling I know only too well.

The theme can be found here.

The Weekend Coffee Share is a WordPress community activity in which I may choose to participate from time to time. As indicated in the activity title, entries will appear on the weekend. In accord with my first contribution, the topics will diverge from this blog’s usual subject matter and likely be of a more personal nature.
