Love is Like



Love is like
The magic of a baby’s breath as you hold her close
The lines of an old man as he sits sunning in the park
The joy in a child’s face smothered in ice cream & cake
The delicate beauty of a rose petal glistening with dew
The glory of the sun rising over & through the fog
The majesty of the stately redwood tree climbing to the sky
The awesome power of the thunder & lightning in a storm
The patience of a river that can carve a Grand Canyon
The sadness on the face of the puppy left behind
The waves curling on the shore, ever new, ever changing
The hurts we do to one another… why do we?
The kindnesses we share… why not more?
