A Love Song

The trees are singing my music.

Edward Elgar
======================
I love music.
I love silence.

I love poetry.
I love a blank page.

I love colorful art.
I love the blackness of the night sky.

I love the beauty of a well kept garden.
I love the wildness of the forest.

I love the order of science.
I love the chaos of nature.

I love companionship.
I love solitude.

I love the logic of rational thought.
I love the fantasies of imagination.

I love the happy memories of my life.
I love the contemplation of future adventures.

I love the things I managed to do.
I love the plans I'm making..

I loved it that I am alive today.
I love tomorrow.

I love this moment.
And I will love the next.

Very poetic. This reminds me of Ecclesiastes 3:1. A season for everything. Love, Val xox

You are indeed fortunate to have such love within you.

You hear the music,
You hear the silence.

You feel the rhythm,
You feel the calm.

You dream in colour,
You dream under the stars.

You see beauty close,
You see the forest through trees.

You understand universal law,
You understand nature’s role.

You accept love from others,
You accept your own love for yourself.

You think the train runs along parallel lines,
You think the boat sails on an unpredictable sea.

You remember the best parts of your life,
You remember to keep your mind open for even better.

You are proud of your achievements,
You are proud of your future plans.

You spread the happiness you have for today,
You spread hope for tomorrow.

You take time as it is given you,
You take time to give back more.



If I had only a little of your love I could write music that would carry rhythm through every colour of the spectrum and light the night with a beauty that this moment holds for all time.
Unfortunately I find love the most difficult emotion to feel and quite impossible to give.
