The Sun Said

Sunset
Sunset
Kiss her for me

 

…and the sun said:

‘I’m here and I will always be here for you.
You can rely on me to start and end your day with.
You don’t have to always look at me or pay me attention,
but I am here for you.
When you’re ready,
just look far and away and you shall see me
setting and rising and I toss colors up in the sky,
celebrating life with you.’ –

Love Will Find a Way

I love you from the center of my being.
I love you all the way to my soul.
I love you to the depths of me that even I haven’t even truly explored.

ANSWER by Sarah McLachlan

I will be the answer
At the end of the line
I will be there for you
While you take the time
In the burning of uncertainty
I will be your solid ground
I will hold the balance
If you can’t look down

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all gone out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind
Take me to a
Place so holy
That I can wash this from my mind
The memory of choosing not to fight

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
‘Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all burned out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind

For me

for me
I came home tired
You can tell from the slump of my shoulders
You told me to sit and don’t bother to cook
As I was dozing off
I felt you lift my leg and warm lotion covered my skin
You massaged my feet when I know your ankle is hurting
I thanked you because it felt so good and I felt better
You said you didn’t do it for me
I smiled and felt even better.

In re: Gibran on Love

twilight
i submit myself to love’s threshing floor
and i am yours to knead as you please
i bleed willingly and joyfully for you
and i wake at dawn everyday
feeling the misery of being without you
but i give thanks for another day
of being able to love you
in the middle of the day i pause
and think of you
and meditate on your love’s ecstasy
when i lay down to sleep
it is your name that I silently whisper into the night
you are my heart
