Love And Perfection (Reflections) - Poem by Bonnie Cote

ah love is grand.
you look at the beloved
and they are sun-drenched
under a cloudy sky.

each line defines a beauty
etched out sketches in their face
like a maze of the gods.

how you want to touch each hair
both rich and grey
how you want to kiss chapped lips
and have them always stay
against your own.

you might tell me that love
has no sight
i tell you love
is the only sight there is
without love
there is no beauty in anything.

without love there is a shallow sheen
a thin veil of shine
that wears off quickly.

oh to love in all loves glory
smile and not care at all how long you stare
it's okay with your beloved as they know you care.

having seen the dead go into the ground
in freezing rain you feel the pain
of love come and lost to the grave.

god save you by grace if you can't take that lesson
to your heart and home and cherish a love divine
while it is in your hands and in your arms.

what good is life if not for love?
if not for love, then all is lost
to nothingness and cowardice.

in love's eyes love is perfect
and perfectly fine for the duration
of existence depends upon it.
