Learning to love takes a lifetime.
It’s many layers and nuances
Are so varied,
Ranging from subtle to bold;
From simple to complex.

The place where love resides is vast,
Its many challenges and treasures
Have been buried
Waiting for us to find them;
To enjoy their rewards.

Discovering love is risky;
It opens wide our very being
In such a way
That others might reject us
And we will know great pain.

Deciding to love takes courage;
Understanding the risk while knowing
The price we pay
Is worth this essential food
That nourishes our souls.
