656 To Love A God [24 November 2004]

A song plays on in my mind,
never ending,
the melody infusing with my soul
as I look to the sky.
The cerulean blue reminds me
of the eyes of the man I adore.
I have said before
that to love him
would be like to love a god.
That may be truth,
but he is also a man,
and should I be cast down
then that risk shall be worth it.
For to love him
would be to love heaven,
a thing I can’t not do.
I see the many faces
as he is seen to the public
and I wonder what the man is like
in the darkness of his home.
Be he quiet or pensive,
I want to know the truth.
I realize, as I walk down
this rained out road,
that many have come before me
and my love is only just now realized,
but to love him is only the right thing
that I feel I can do.
Whether I meet him or not,
whether the dreams I have
include the realization of his sel f
in what is my reality or not,
I will move on without fear.
If I should be cast down
back to earth then so be it.
For love, only risks should be taken.
Otherwise, what is it we live for?
