Raison d’être

Raison d’être

To see the world
as love sees it

the constant
ephemeral flame

what fires the heart
sets acts of passion

in motion
and drives us

to be better
than ourselves

to be the gift
that never dies

to be the truth
that never denies

its reason for being
its being for a reason

John Lyons
