A mixture of art in all its forms and random grabs from life and whatever else bubbles up….

Yin and yang of love..

I love you,

Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,

Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you

For putting your hand
Into my heaped up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life

Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of works,
Not a reproach,
But a song.

I love you

Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good,

And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.

You have done it
a touch,
a word,
a sign.

You have done it
By being yourself.

Perhapes that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.

  1. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.
