If I stopped loving you…….

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
― Lao Tzu

love 6

If I stopped loving you,
there’d be
no rhythm and flow;
radiance would be vanquished,
a forgotten glow.

Like holding my breath,
under dark waters,
my heart would tire
and my lungs would falter.

If I stopped loving you
the sun may fade from the sky,
and the moon would knowingly
say her goodbyes.
The stars would no longer
bear the darkness,
a world that’s dim,
no fragrance
or sparkle.

If I stopped loving you
the earth may crumble,
into pitiful disquiet,
songbirds would
tremble.
Life would contain
no tenderness,
a chasm of heartbreak
and endlessness.

If I stopped loving you
nothing would make sense,
because I’m made of love
and all it presents.
It’s the air that I breathe,
and it’s what I’d bequeath.

If I stopped loving you,
silence would be distasteful,
a continuous numbness,
and a life ungrateful.
The sound of my voice, in the dark
would be hollow,
an echo in the abyss
empty and shallow.

If I stopped loving you,
tears would smudge the ground
and rivers would form,
all hope would be drowned.

Between the earth and the sky
love’s breath exists,
from the beginning of life
it valiantly persists.
Love pursues us to the ends of the earth
don’t squander its pleasure,
or take for granted its worth.

When you see adoration
in the eyes
of your love,
let the magic transform you
to heaven above.

And in that moment
when love holds its breath,
stay steady and nourish its pause
with strength..
For as swift as love stills,
it will rise in passion
blow like gale force winds
and arise from the ashes.

If I stopped loving you,
I would cease to be me,
for it flows
and surrounds me,
it speaks through
the trees.
