You Will Be Loved

No one I know has plans. A little surprising. Usually the commercial machinery has cranked on the guilt so everyone has expensive plans, each seeking to outdo the other.

But this year, none of my friends seem to.

Makes me wonder.

Someone sent me the following and I thought it was nice.

Nothing you become will disappoint me;
I have no preconception that I'd like to see you be or do
I have no desire to foresee you, only to discover you
You can't disappoint me.

-Mary Haskell-
From The Love Letters of Mary Haskell and Kahlil Gibran


We were together...I have forgotten the rest.



I love your feet only because they walked upon the earth
and upon the wind and upon the waters, until they found me.

-Pablo Neruda-


Lo, I have opened unto you the
gates of my being,
And like a tide, you have flowed
into me.

The innermost recesses of my spirit
are full of you
And all the channels of my soul
are grown sweet with your presence
For you have brought me peace;
the peace of great tranquil waters,
And the quiet of the summer sea.

Your hands are filled with peace as
The noon-tide is filled with light;
about your head is bound the eternal
Quiet of the stars, and in your heart
dwells the calm miracle of twilight.

I am utterly content.

In all my being is no ripple of unrest
for I have opened unto you the
wide gates of my being
and like a tide, you have flowed into me.
