Poems: Links in an eternal chain

Image

Have you ever loved someone so much

That their heartfelt smile 

Made you deeply grateful and caused you to bless

The source of this spontaneous joy:

Whether it be a song, a cricketing stroke 

Or a butterfly that flew by…

You wished the singer, the player or the gardener  

Good wishes from your heart

Tracing the smile of your beloved

Back to what you considered the start,

Only to find that in turn

This singer was inspired by a muse,

The cricketer by his coach

And the butterfly drawn to a flower,

That the gardener had planted in his wife’s name

Each of whom was an integral link

In a never ending chain:

The muse made beautiful by the love 

That she received from her soul friend,

The coach made strong by his son’s admiration

The gardener softened by his wife’s grace.

Slowly but surely, you begin to see

All of us are interwoven like intricate lace

And the smile on your loved one’s face

Belongs to infinite eternity

So if you love even one, truly

You will not fail to see 

It is the very same

As loving all of existence fully.

  1. Hello Sangeeta,

    It’s also a delight to discover more wonderful poetry from you.
    I especially love:

    So if you love even one, truly
    You will not fail to see
    It is the very same
    As loving all of existence fully.

    This, is powerfully important to remember.

    Warm regards,
    Louise
