    From Whence Did Love Cometh?


    From whence, I’ve pondered
    Did true love begin
    Was it deep in the valley
    Of a land without
    Sin

    Did it incubate in a chamber inundated with dreams
    Dry roast in an oven of wonderful things

    Did it undertake a journey of the greatest magnitude
    Impregnate those around it with a kind…and cheerful mood

    ~ Was that the birth of love?

    From whence, I wonder
    Did true love bloom
    Was it the meadow of eternity
    Beneath a warm
    December’s
    Moon
    Where there grew an ocean of pAtIeNcE
    Watered by morning’s dew
    Left me fantasizing the wonders
    That I realized
    In you

    Is it the treasure of the rainbow
    We “want” but never “seek”
    Or, the well of youthful exuberance
    That keeps us strong…but makes us weak

    From whence, I beg you
    Did true love come
    Did it gather its strength from the rising sun
    Has it endured hypocrisies, far and wide
    Returned to celebrate with a joyful sigh

    Did it take you on its journey
    …Travel distances from afar
    Like three wise men in Jesus’ day
    Always following the northern star

    From whence, I say
    Did true love swoon
    Was it along the river of contentment
    Where every month is a day in June

    Where April showers gave its serenity to May
    May gifted it with flowers
    …Air mailed it
    My way

    It came and went so ef-fort-less-ly
    Made me giddy for a moment
    But when it left, I was empty

    Saying

    To whence, I beg thee
    Did true love flee
    Left me barren
    …As lonely as can be​

    Love
    Came from your thought to
    Reject
    What you found not perfect
    To cause your
    Up
    Set

    A means to get ready
    To
    Take
    What you heard

    But what you were listening
    To
    Were always your words

    Each thought
    Each
    Minute
    Each
    Hour
    Each day I devour

    The misconceptions
    From you
    As to your own appeal

    I am everything
    You reject
    That's why I am real

    Lonliness
    Is
    A cause to be sad

    But my husband left me
    Before he saw me

    Now

    Who has the right to be mad?

    You never lost everything you've got

    You didn't want M.E. :(

    But you still have my

    HEART! :love:

    It is unconditional, like my M.I.N.D
