My Religion - Poem by Matthew Edward Peterson

in the end, you look to the beginning
and after time has passed
you wonder where the time went
where your effort went
and where your love went
was it properly served
and did i give everything
a fool who seeks love 
believes in the utmost try
and believes in the mending
and believes in the strength
and forgets in the end
the love that was tried
but never given
a man who loves
pays no attention to his love given
nor love wished to recieve
but in the beauty of his partner
the softness of her skin
the kindness of her spirit
and envelops his life
conjoined by her side
and cooks a tapestry
in which its sweetness
shall never leave his mouth
there is never an end
nor a beginning
but an unfolding depth
when you love 
all things go aside
even love
and life begins 
there is no pain
no separation
no matter matter how far
the sky has taken you apart
there is no jealousy
only the wish
happiness is felt
in their horizon
there is no gain
no loss
no pride
no belief
no ready
there is only
you and i
and steady
and i shall love you with the unfolding infinity
not for time
but for you
my heart is true
and life i think
shall believe in love
if only for a moment
kept splendored for inspiration
