for all my friends in The Philippines


The One and Only

for all my friends in The Philippines

Were I to love my neighbor as myself we would be enemies
He has never tried to kill me yet as far as I know
Yet I have tried to kill me such that nothing here below
Could have outdone the determination of that dread disease

Nothing could have stayed the hand of death but the hand of life
With my own against me in the strife of life and death between
But love is everywhere and even and especially there
Above and between where love is the meaning of what I mean

Love makes me believe for the first time in an adult way
A feeling something must be out there caring what I do
Out there above and in here between where love knows what I mean
As tomorrow blooms from the seeds of yesterday today

Still only but not lonely anymore with love at the door
Loving myself as my neighbor a labor of love for me
As I find when I refuse to see I might as well be blind
And I believe for the first time what I only thought I knew

Believing is relieving after only being lonely
Seeing is believing and my eyes are not deceiving when
Opening eyes and heart I begin to see the light of love again
Nothing to prove to me as love proves to be the one and only

Much truth in these marvelous lines, Steven.
Love is its own feedback. -gene.

Still only but not lonely anymore with love at the door
Loving myself as my neighbor a labor of love for me
Very well done. And SOMEONE out there does care.
God bless,
Lew
