It’s never easy leaving a lover
Pulling apart from a sacred other
Leaving sweet bonds connection brings
Alone again after your heart sings
Back to separate illusion of alone
Out from the cocoon you shared with a clone
Leaving the cleaving and heaving behind
Back to limitations of only one mind
Return to the emptier heart space of one
Very familiar not nearly as fun
Immediately focused on who will be next
In the meantime inventing a pretext
As if you need reason or rational plan
The longings of heart for a woman or man
The joyous reunions congeal in our mind
As we leave a part of ourselves behind
This empty feeling absence of spark
Affirms our connection was no simple lark
No more important activity found
Deeply connected is sacred ground
Cherish and love the gifts of communion
Honor the sweet voice that comes from the union
Covet with reverence quickening hearts
Enable that presence wherever it starts
Trust the aliveness and joy that it brings
Bathe in the beauty that soars over things
Never lose sight of the gift and its blessing
Make sure sweet love is part of your questing
At your noble end one thing you will know
Each of your love flights caused you to grow
And at your end one thing you have
Memories of love to serve as your salve
What have you learned from the love connections in your life?
How has each one contributed to who you are?
Do you have wisdom to pass onto others?
What would that be?
How is your current life enhanced by love connections?
Do you give them proper recognition?
