If I Should Love...

Photo




When we love
Perfectly
It will be
Heaven

I should wish to love
This way
Even now
To love fully
Then let go
To rejoice completely
In another’s success
And wish them nothing
But happiness
I would love to love
The way I should
And never blush
Should thought rush
From under this hood
Of flesh and blood disguise
And my eyes
Would be the window
To unspoken word
I should love to think
It would be all right
If every thought was heard
And no grudge or spite
Would blemish the light
That ought to shine
From the divine
And it could
If I would
Love like I should…
