This is life

So, this is life.

It is too rich,

Too sweet

Too powerful

It takes my breath.

I imagined it was easy.

I just had to grow up,

To “get big”

“Oh wait!”

I never imagined this…

The bittersweet joy

Of life,

It is not easy.

It was not supposed to be.

So, this is how God breathes life into man…

We get it all, the whole experience.

I joyfully accept this gift

Of life.

I get it.

Thank You,

For this day of life, of love.

No, Love doesn't hide

Where does love come from? Was it always there, hiding?
