Only Love

I face the future,
arms open wide
delicious uncertainty
heart faithful guide

Love holds one hand
fear the other side -
beckoning me to promised lands
and hells where they abide.

I walk in the center.

In truth I will stand,
each moment,
that’s all I can handle

Future is too far away.
Even the next breath
lends mystery to my being.

Past is history with no meaning.
What’s next?
I can’t tell
but with heart
each step fell
and falls
into the fecund earth
and fertile soil
where up on this earth I toil
and dance
rejoice and

again and again
to rebirth

only love
walks inside.
