The Way of Love

Simple, gracious, Lovely in itself;
Love comes in unexpected moments
Slips inside like the hand of a small child
Love is trust in the moment
Tiny and large at the same time
Love is without expectations
Love is without desire
Love is requited and never wanting
Love is a garden of never-ending delight
Love is all sensation
Love is consumed by the eyes
Love is held in the heart
Love is the only thing that can be multiplied and divided endlessly.
