Love floats in the air around me.
I feel it in the wind:
The clean smell of flowers in the spring,
And the gentle sway of trees against
A deep blue sky.
Love grows in a bed of summer roses,
In the hearts of dogs who shadow me,
In the smile and laughter of a friend,
And my son’s hand in mine to keep
Me from tripping.
Love is found in a teachers words,
And the skills I learn that help me
Become more mindful in living.
Love endures in the people who learn
To accept my strengths and weaknesses,
Yet inspire me to stretch beyond my limits;
In a mother who learns to let go of her son,
So he might become a better man;
In trees that last a life-time to give to me
Beauty and hope in my darkest hours;
And in God’s promises which give me courage
To endure the losses and grief found in life.
Love is in the air that surrounds me.
