A Sacred Love


There are four things
That too mysterious for me to understand
An Eagle flying in the sky,
A snake moving on a rock,
A ship finding its way over the sea;
And a man and woman falling in love.

Two human loves make one divine
All love should be simply stepping-stones
To the love of God.
So it was with me,
And blessed be his great goodness and mercy.

Love is as powerful as Life,
Passion is as strong as the will to Live,
It burst like a raging fire,
Water cannot put it out
No flood can drown it
With one long kiss my heart throbs

Love is a beautiful flower
Which I may not touch
But whose fragrance
Makes the garden a place of delight
Just the same love that has been given to you
Is too sacred a thing to be talked of to anyone…
