LOVE

We love each other
this is not the end result,
but the beginning.
Love begins when two people join together
to form a unity of souls
written in their hearts,
a new direction which
requires acceptance, patience
and understanding.
Acceptance for the differences,
for the struggles and the hardships,
and most of all
for change and growth.
Patience to allow time
to take its natural course to flow,
to blossom. Flowers and love
thrive on the same things,
time, warmth and care.
Understanding is the wisdom of maturity,
the combination of patience and acceptance.
And so, my friend,
I offer these things to you as one -
my gift to you.
