Love is?

Almost six decades behind me and I'm still wondering what love really is,
IF it really is.
It seems each time I think I 'get it',
I just end up more confused than ever.

So maybe love doesn't exist?
But even as I write that I know it's wrong.
Though I don't know why I know it's wrong.
Just a knowing, a faith.

I suppose, like a faith in God.
I know he/she/it exists.
But I've no proof I can point to.
It's just a knowing. A feeling. A sixth sense.

That's like love.
Maybe that's why they say God is love.
Anyway, maybe give it another decade and I'll have the answer.
Maybe not. Probably not. Ya, definitely not.

Be Kind

Whatever kind of world we create for ourselves, we also create for others.
Let us be mindful of our creations. Create beauty. Create goodness. Create Peace.
Be kind.

This Curse of Alone

This weight is heavy.
This heart of mine.
The burden of lonely.
The wastage of time.

I need to run.
I need to hide.
Slow down my tears.
To a gentler tide.

But life is cruel.
More than not fair.
Need someone to love.
Need someone to care.

When will it end?
This curse of alone.
Find me a love.
Find me a home.
