THE POWER OF LOVE

THE POWER OF LOVE 
  
The world says that love has many a 
                                                 face, 
and that it often burns out in the infernal fire 
                                              of passion. 
Still, my world, when I hear the whispers 
                              coming from darkness beyond, 
the silent whispers of solitude, I know that I want 
to meet her gaze again, peeking sharply and purely 
into my heart, like sunshine peeks 
through the windows of an orphanage, shall I recognize 
                                                                          the same face 
from yesterday, that shone with purity and serenity, 
just like I know for sure that a warm feeling 
flows through my veins with my blood 
when I see her 
                face. 
Of course, it took strength to 
meet with her, because, after all, the poet knows how to 
                                                                          celebrate 
other people's loves, rather than their own. My solitude 
                                                          had no need of me. 
I didn't even need myself, and each 
                                                  life 
that has no love of its own is but a blunder, 
and this is why I tell you, world, 
love may have many a 
                          face, 
but I know for sure that one shines 
                                           for me.
