Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Have You Heard?

Posted Wednesday, May 13, 2015

You've heard it said
Love is patient
Love is kind
It keeps no record of wrongs

You've even heard
Love never fails
Love is all we need
And love always finds a way

Have you heard
That love is fierce?
Love cuts through the lies
Conquers all our fears 

Have you heard
That love is always a surprise?
Always present
But never controlled?

Have you heard?
You were born loving?
You know all you need to know
About love
About loving?

It's true
Love is inside you
To be expressed

It waits
Behind your fear
Behind your conditions
Behind your lies

You were born loving
You know all you need to know
About love
About loving
