The sun has been your lover

Caressing you with flecks of gold gilded light

The moon has been your lover

Kissing you with soft silvered kisses of lunar light

The wind has been your lover

Whispering your name in a constant chant of silent adoration

The rain has been your lover

Showering you with liquid crystals of the finest configurations 

And the river of blood in your veins

A bold declaration of pulsating life

Flowing in tandem with your beating heart 

How life has loved you my dear

Though you feel you are just a leaf

That soon falls with time

Life keeps loving you




There’s a beautiful symmetry

In the way life writes her stories

Gridlines of all the places we have been

Contours of our journey through time

Every laugh and tightening of our lips

Eventually leaves a trail on our faces

As if we are life’s own muses
