The Essence of Love

It is in the stillness
where peaceful rest lays
that I find myself
lazing quietly and thoughtfully
enjoying the moment
connecting to my light
so my soul can shine

It is in the smile
freely given without thought
the whispering of the wind
as it playfully rustles
through the leaves
making branches sway
and leaves dance

It is in giving
to serve and inspire
to provide a little peace
and always hope
to remind people
we are never alone
and we are forever loved

It is in the air and the water
spread throughout the world
from the lowest valley
to the highest mountain top
in every living creature
infused in us all
with purpose and intention

It is the essence of love
not meant to hold
but to be released
out into the world
for all within our reach
to give away freely
and to receive fully

If you look, you can see it
listen, you can hear it
sense and you can feel it.
It is not to be feared
God has infused
and blessed us all
with the essence of love.
