THERE IS A DELICACY ABOUT A LIFE
There is a delicacy about a life
Grounded in love.
A strength of sweetness
That in its sunny passion
Adds up to more than the sum of its parts.
More than hope.
More than peace.
More than all the other lovely verities
Love holds close within it.
For it is a generosity of spirit
Upon which all love is founded,
Revealing itself in a precise and passionate
Understanding of helpless need.
Always ready to dance,
Always ready to share in joy,
Always and forever reaching out a hand,
Holding on as long as needed.
