    “The Gift of Love”

    It is so beautiful to see
    And I wonder how ’could be
    With these eyes I realize
    Life on earth is so diverse

    It is so beautiful to hear
    No one knows how that could be
    With these ears I feel the waves
    Of sound, washing ever over me

    It is so beautiful to know
    Relationships may come, and go
    Love remains without an end
    It is Love itself

    So if life is not beautiful for you
    If pain and fear obscure your view
    Hold fast to that which never ends
    Hold to the You of you

    For inside each, God’s seed resides
    Covered with soil, ripe with promise
    Waiting until that special time
    That comes, without warning

    So if you doubt as all may do
    And if you cry in fear of pain
    And if you sigh without a hope
    Remember Who you truly are

    For inside each a flower grows
    Taking nourishment to fuel its growth
    Waiting until the perfect time
    When its beauty can fully bloom

    Beauty is not always pretty
    Sometimes, it’s only a glow
    A glimmer ‘neath the mighty forces
    Causing fear, trembling and pain

    Bravery is beauty in action
    Caring confirms what the heart bestows
    Love is all that really matters
    The gift of life is all it knows

    When you experience another’s caring
    When you feel touched and compelled to give
    Living your life always in service
    Beauty is service, as well as a rose

    Caring will lead you in right direction
    Caring will fill your heart with peace
    Anxiety is only the ego speaking
    Love is why we each have come

    So, let not your life be troubled
    See each event for the growth it brings
    ‘Till, full of wisdom, spent, used up
    You return to Love, to love again
