The courage to love




In February 1988 I began to wonder in despair if I would ever find love again. I wrote these words:

I had the courage to love

I was touched by its exhilaration

I was encompassed by its arms

But no – it was only an illusion.

The deep needs of my heart found a home in imagination.

Why does love make such a difference?

It is so bittersweet.

So many tears have been shed;

Yet I still have the courage to love again.


It not hard to fall in love with “love”. It is an exhilarating experience and life can seem so empty without it.

I hope you experience much love in your life today.
