In Spite of It All...I Love You






When the shortcomings of Reality
Steal my breath
And foolish fantasy
Is not enough
To make up the difference
…I love you

When the curves of your wanderlust
Do not align
In any shape or form
With mine
And I am baffled by its design
…I love you

When the matters of Fact
Will not be swayed
As they scramble awry
My plans well-laid
Because life’s just that way
...I love you


When every thing we could be
Is nothing more
Than everything we should be
In life’s crazy war
Of misconception and muse
…I love you

…because I refuse to stop
Dancing, reaching, yearning
In this flight of
No returning from
Whence we’ve come
And because it is not good
To go where we are going
Alone…


…I love you

  1. This really speaks to me today, thank you.
    I refuse, too :-) (some days it's a hard thing to do, but better days always follow...the sooner the better!)
