the intimate gaze

*

loving God above all else

purifies the heart

turns us toward our neighbor

to see all through the eyes

of Love

*

all else is temporal

falling into

mortal limitations of the mind

subject to our fears

and doubts

*

the enraptured gaze of love

beholds only

the beauty of the beloved

wherever the glance

may fall

*

seeing love glowing in the eyes

of a lover

fans the spark within

the heart into

a flame

*

tend to that inward burning

with great care

guard the fire of love

with the longing

of hope

*

however love comes to you

it will be fashioned

by God for your heart

alone to feel

and know

*

the heart trembles and moves

when love is near

and opens to the beloved

to enter and dwell

within us

*

the beloved has many names

and many faces

love waits behind the

precious veil

of spirit

*

fall into love with God

and feel each

and every moment

become new

and true
