Love Gift

I saw Love climb upon the wind Heard the laughter in the breeze Tasted lilacs, jasmine, and honeysuckle With a turn and twist Love caressed my skin The scent of dark chocolate filled my nose A deep longing-hunger arose within me Love was off again gathering the rain clouds A shower of tears . . . refreshing My parched soul drank deeply Sweetness spread across my tongue My body filled with Love’s offering Now joyful tears fell from my eyes A drowsiness overcame me and I slept Love slipped into my dreams Warm light cocooned me and filled my lungs Bright colors danced upon my fantasies An incredible energy pulsated throughout my body Love took my hand and laughing -- we chased the light Breathing hard I asked Love . . . this precious gift, why me? I am unworthy Love answered: I Am the whisper in the wind The Spirit of truth seeking and restoring . . . you are wholly loved Of the mighty Kings -- Faith, Hope and Love I Am the greatest . . . and you are worthy to Me Go now and be Love . . . and know, I Am with you always @ @ / / | \ / |/ / | \/ | / \ / \ David Meade 12/04/2014 Live Generously

Visiting the alley of your heart, David. Loved this one on Love. It is indeed a gift, and therefore should be treasured, by sharing it with others by the way we live. That the Giver will be pleased. PS. You are already being missed. Hope you are keeping well. Kim. hugs!
