Endless reflection

Endless reflection

I wonder what it is
           that shapes the light
into love everlasting :
           at times the years

simply drop away
           as though nothing
was ever lost
           and failure
never known
           I have lost count

of all the faces
           that have shed
tears in my presence
           lost count
of all the roses
           and all the thorns

they say that it’s
           a learning curve
but what is there
           to learn of love
that gathers
           instinctively
in the aching heart
           If I had all the answers

I would share them with you
           but I have only my hands
and my lips
           and my words of love
and they are yours for as long
           as you desire them
