How can you know the someone whom
You’ll cherish throughout your life?
What hints identify who will make
Your future husband….or wife?
Sometimes you’ll feel a gravity..
A force abrupt, fierce…obsessed
As if you’re falling to a destination unknown
By its strong pull you’re possessed.
Or maybe there’s a childhood sense
Of unselfconscious grace…
Sustained within the safety net
Of an unprovoked embrace.
Could it be there’s the terror of
The searing pain of grief?
As if the loss of love were death..
Sheer screams without relief.
Or is there a sense of wonder
Too precious to be lost….
A gift that makes life so good
Beyond all constraint or cost.
If the cumulation of all these signs
Enables your search for true love
Remember everyday with them is a gift
Give thanks to thee above.
Please remember that love is an amazing gift….never take it for granted..you never know when it might end……
