But one belief, one knowing
that absorbs every desire into
its invisible womb. And simple
like a good taste on the tongue.
And perfect as heaven in the eyes.
But one brave surrender, to open
every book and turn on all the lights.
One mind graced with trusting,
sure of the warmth surrounding and of
tenderness in every destroyed hope.
And more real than the corners of a table
or the crisp red of a rose.
More real than the shingles on rooftops
or the touch of a spider’s web.
But the one thing unalterable, stronger
than death, than change, than the broken heart.
But one thing to give up all else,
where disappointments, fantasies and greed
melt like candyfloss in the mouth,
and Time is the gift given to learn
the infinite dimensions of love.
