Never easy leaving a lover

Pulling apart from sacred other

Leaving sweet bonds connection brings

Alone again after heart sings


Back to separate illusion of alone

Out from the cocoon shared with a clone

Leaving cleaving and heaving behind

Back to limitations of only one mind


Return to emptier heart space of one

Very familiar not nearly as fun

Focused on who might be next

In the meantime inventing pretext


As if you need reason or rational plan

The longing heart of a woman or man

Joyous unions congeal in our mind

As we leave part of ourselves behind


Empty feeling of a lesser spark

Affirms connection was no simple lark

No more important activity found

Deeply connected in sacred ground


Cherish the love and gifts of communion

Honor the sweet voice that comes from union

Covet with reverence quickening hearts

Enable that presence wherever it starts


Trust the aliveness and joy it brings

Bathe in the beauty that soars over things

Never lose sight of the gift and blessing

Make sure sweet love is part of your questing


As your life wanes one thing you’ll know

Every love flights caused you to grow

At your end one thing you have

Memories of love the sweetest salve


What have you learned from love connections and how has each one contributed to who you are?

How is your life enhanced by love connections and do you give them proper recognition?
