The Center

Written by: aida melesse

The center 
that holds this life 
is love.
Under the gravity of discontent
the center 
that balances it
is only love.
The load we carry
The only burden that weighs
Is love.

How can we refute the dreams?  
The thoughts it brings
When we close our eyes? 
Its touches
Its stories
Its whispers..
How can we deny its pleasures? 
The joy that rises
When we feel its force?
The center of it all 
is love
Only love
nothing else.
The rest in its arms
Only in love, 
In love and nothing else
It comes.

Must give it all 
Without holding
Not expecting to get it back
knowing still the balance comes
The footprint back to the source
The center remains
*** LOVE ***
