Solitude and Love
I know solitude, its peace and calm,
its loneliness at times;
It fills the shadows where your inner self resides
with clarity, truth and light,
I know love, its burning flames and gentle ones,
its soaring heights;
Growing in abundance and joy
in the dance of life.
Both have been sought since beginning of time,
as separate entities;
Yet, aren’t they part of the same?
Of the song of life.
So in a heart becalmed, the truth shimmers,
Let love dance free in storms and sun,
also to freely live in Solitude.
Never separate the two,
together they enrich and strengthen;
The ocean and sky live in you,
you live in them.
Free and true.
