A Grateful Love

Love that suspends ego,

lets go the bitter renderings

of past wrongs, forgives

seven times and then seventy

times seven more.

Love that covers others

with mercy — clothing, feeding,

sheltering those with needs

even to the point of sacrifice.

Love that listens to the grief,

holds vigil during times of illness

and death, and settles into

the spaces of loss in support

of those hurting.

A grateful love grows.

A grateful love endures.

A grateful love knows

we are nothing without

that first imparting

of the Love that has no end

and had no beginning.
