WHEN WE LOVE
 
Times when love moves us
To stretch far beyond our reach.
 
I watch us
Calculating the cost,
Weighing the risk,
Rolling the dice.
Might we lose this time?

Times when love beckons us
To the tightrope
Stretching ‘cross
‘Cross an uncharted abyss.
 
Holding our balance gracefully,
We sway back and forth
With complete certainty
What awaits us on the other side,
Complete uncertainty
What waits beneath
Should we fall.

It may seem like a gamble,
But you taught me long ago
It’s what we do
When we love someone.

And
I hold your heart dearly
Carefully
Gently
As I whisper the words,
"Thank You."
