A Hymn to Love


at first hand it was not written for her, but I 've written this poem today and 2 Sept is today=her birthday. She had so many problems about this topic, but sure, love is not an ego-walker....

A Hymn to Love
love needs no words
no consonant or dissonant
no vocal, but reciprocal
not just for now, but for eternal

love needs no deeds
but the few seeds
be planted in your heart, in many ways
not just for now, but for always

I sing this song for you,
my love
I walk this path for you,
my love
this unwritten is alone for you,
here and up above

love needs no words
order or disorder
no morning dew no birds
no signs or limits no border

love needs no words
no consonant or dissonant
no vocal, but reciprocal
not for alone, but mutual

Friday 2 Sept 2011- @16.56 hrs
for my sis-in-law on her BirthDay

To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
