From this heart of mine,
love flows like a river,
gently washing over the pebbles and stones,
making ripples and patterns on the river's surface.
In places, it is so still and smooth and serene,
one could float there for hours.
And then we get to places where one could slip,
be taken down by the strong current,
the choppy waters,
whirling, swirling, unknowing.
My love is unpredictable like the clear water
that ebbs and flows with the pathway laid out for it.
And yet still it flows. It forever flows,
continuing on, even through tight spaces, blockages.
My love, like the water, sustains,
essential for this life.
It will carry you, as it carries me,
to an ocean,
where it can co-exist with all that is!
