Love,life and you.

What is love? I asked you,

You had no answer,

We just looked at the sky.

The stars smiled back.

We were sitting across the sea,

A wave brought home your message.

I sent it back in a ship.

The clouds roared,

I slipped.

The fountain was calling me.

On my way I crossed a river,

I asked it,

Why do you flow?

Only to die in the sea?

The river smiled,

And replied, it is my destiny.

I reached the fountain

Joy filled my heart.

But the fountain was dry.

All the water had joined the river

The sea was their destiny.

I flew with the clouds,

There was a storm

A dance of creation

The sea was celebrating life.

I returned to the shore

Sailed a tiny ship

The waves returned immediately

You were waiting for me.

An eternal wait, An yearning

Absence makes it intense

Love knows no distance

You are with me always.
