The Oxygen In My Air

Love…
…makes each person a searcher who hopes for a discovery that shines a bright light into his or her heart. When found, the radiance of love is reflected outward onto everything adding more color to life and more joy to living.

From “The Joys of Love” by Madeleine L’Engle
true-lovers-looking-into-eyes-of-each-otherI feel as though
I’m not breathing
when I’m out
of his presence.
He’s the oxygen
in my air,
the sun
in my universe,
the staff
of my life.
