Where is essence of love hidden
Why so hard to find
Does my breath have it's fragrance
Is my mouth a sign
Do your hands hold its meaning
Can your lips tell its tale
Will we make it last forever
Or let it grow stale
How can we know true love
Is it just between we two
Or is there manna from above
That must enter in too
Do we sense there is something
That needs to be fulfilled
Not just for our pleasures
But a spiritual will
Or do we liken love to passion
That flames our desires
The kind that drives us crazy
Til we put out the fires
We can keep those kind of feelings
While learning how to give
Adjusting to each other in ways
That teach us how to live
We can with mature appreciation
No need for rivalry
Give ourselves not counting cost
Concentrate on "We"
Let pride and anger get lost
Willing to forget "me"
Now the scent of love is found
Now our hearts in love abound
Now we know there's always three!

|In many ways, these lines reveal spirituality as the ultimate romance, and romance as the ultimate spirituality. Approached with the right chemical measures of humility, passion, and love-filled intent, each enhances and becomes the other. A TALE OF LOVE makes it easy for one's soul to believe that the search for joyful meaning is well worth taking.|

|Agape Love ... where we simply give, unconditionally to another.
Love & Light,
|Reviewed by Sandra Mushi
|"Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all thing, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."
To truly love is to accept another as they are - to know a person deeply, with genuine concern for their welfare, without feeling the need to change him or her. It means giving of yourself out of the desire to bless another, not hoping for reciprocation. When we truly love, we don´t merely tolerate someone else´s differences, we celebrate them. We take the other fully into our heart and create a sacred shrine for him or her there, paying the due honor and respect of royalty.
It is when you are able to look at the persons' good and bad qualities day in and day out and still want to be with them, still want to have and hold a relationship with them. When you disagree, which happens in all healthy relationships, you manage to still find a part of you which has compassion for that person. It's when you love a person regardless of how they look when they wake up, even if they gain or lose a few or a lot of pounds.
Beautiful write, Eileen!

There is no doubt on the 'three', for our spiritual appetites must be fulfilled in order for the two to be complete.
This is stunning work and thought-provoking truths.

|There is no room in true love for ego !
Any true relationship must be blessed by God, and imbued with patience and tolerance to have any chance of survival in this materialistic and selfish world.
You express the essence of love in partnership with the Almighty eloquently Eileen, as the blueprint for happiness and fulfilment !
