Divine Love — by Millie Parmer

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Divine Love — by Millie Parmer

You might not recognize

it at first glance
but keep searching

for the familiarity.

You look into me,
as an extension of you,
to give you answers,
fill the gaps,
disguise sorrows,
but

you have the
only antiphony
that replaces everything —
Love is the only melody

your heart will ever sing.

I am only here
to remind you
in a dim reflection,

a returning shadow

of your spirit,
and then you can
know in your alone-ness,

truly absorb,
the divine light
that beams from you

is what you find
when you stare

into my eyes…

love is the thread

that holds us

together

and separately

it is the only substance

of our divine existence.

Oh that is the most beautiful thing I have read in a long time... Thank you Welles! It is a perfect poem to contemplate on this "special day."
Happy Valentines Day! :kiss:
Love,
Sandy
