Being in Love
I’m in love—utterly and completely,
Without the slightest doubt!
It took an awful lot of painful practice;
Lots of bleeding, bumps and bruises.
Heartache after heartache,
Heart growing all the time,
Searching feverishly for my one true love;
Not realizing all along,
I was moving in the right direction—
Getting closer each moment, following the clues;
Until I finally awoke to what I had dreamed,
Just to see that dream come alive with love—
A love that just grows into a future,
With few fears; scared but safe,
To experience love not from the sidelines,
But from the inside out,
Top to bottom and front to back;
Letting go and giving in to the true love
That was always there,
Waiting patiently to be seen and taken in
And then given back.
Loving, from now on, forever and then some;
Knowing very well where it all comes from,
And never forgetting to say ‘Thank you!’
Being in love is loving to love generously,
Replacing fear with hope and trust,
Growing into love and our very best.
