A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

A poem I found

Found a poem today, not able to find who it’s attributed to though. It puts in elegant words the way my parents treated each other, so I will share it as an inspiration. It conveys the concepts they tried to impart to me, that a relationship doesn’t just happen, both people must choose it, most must also choose to develop it, nurture it, allow the other flexibility and their own space, hopes and dreams.

Love Like Morning Sun

 

So often, when I’m alone with my thoughts,

I feel your presence enter me

like the morning sun’s early light,

filling my memories and dreams of us

with a warm and clear radiance.

You have become my love, my life,

and together we have shaped our world

until it seems now as natural as breathing.

But I remember when it wasn’t always so –

times when peace and happiness seemed more

like intruders in my life than

the familiar companions they are today;

times when we struggled to know each other,

but always smoothing out those rough spots

until we came to share ourselves completely.

We can never rid our lives entirely

of sadness and difficult times

but we

can understand them together, and grow

stronger as individuals and as a loving couple.

If I don’t tell you as often as I’d like,

it’s because I could never tell you enough –

that I’m grateful for you

sharing your life with mine,

and that my love for you will live forever
