LOVE is the Poetry of the Senses. (Honore de Balzac)
LOVE is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. (Aristotle)
One Love! One Heart! Let's Get Together
and Feel all right! (sung by Bob Marley)
Love is the balm that contains the power of healing. Love is the great refiner and beautifier. Love is more! Love is the key to every door. It is the creative reality behind every ardent hope. Love is the cohesive power of the universe...as it holds families together, the entire world and the universe.
If love were withdrawn,
all things would fall apart and disintegrate. When a human being eliminates love from his/her life, he too begins to fall apart. Love is not only eternal...but it is the most desirable element to possess.
Several years ago, a long time friend (a High School English teacher) sent the following compassionate message to a personal friend who felt that her world waiting-to-be-fulfilled, was 'falling apart'...due to a relationship that failed to develop because of extenuating circumstances.
She wrote ~ “Love”...a philosophical poem based on my experiences
which hopefully will help you through the days ahead:
Love, unlike the fairy tale
Is not 'happily-ever-after.'
Love is like the rising sun
Which creeps up silently,
Predicting, but unexpectedly,
A new time every day...
Flooding the morning sky
With pink and golden beauty.
Then moving restlessly,
Advancing on high
To a dazzling blue zenith.
The climax of its destiny...
Fulfillment of its journey...
But hovering only briefly.
Then dipping slowly, gradually;
At the edge of the horizon...
Flooding the evening sky
With a final defiant display
Of warmth and golden beauty.
Until the fall of darkness.
Then...sadness and loneliness ~
Yet, with the dawn
A new Love will be born!

Words of Wisdom
The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.
(Jacques Benigne Bossue)
No matter, how dark the moment,
love and hope are always possible.
Don’t let anyone…EVER dull your Sparkle!
