Imagining Love

Think of a doorway opening to paradise
Softly unlocked by a tender kiss.
Imagine the passion love will then fashion
From eager hearts climbing this stairway to bliss.
When love takes control of the very soul.
Being 'in love' affects every minute
Of every day, then through years of life's span
Catch, if you can, the reason for you being 'in' it.

'In love' is far more than poetic phrase.
It's a state of being - more than a state
Of existing for pleasure, - caring's entailed.
Imagine the difference love can create.

Doorways to love have various faces.
Parental and filial, and care for the old.
Devotion to offspring, help for the helpless.
Imagine how many love stories are told
Which, rippling in circles, quench life's love-thirst.
Watering another when troubles abound.
Commitment to love is an awesome thing.
But imagine a world without love around.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
