Today I saw love
In all its many forms
Love of a wife for her husband, now gone;
Love of daughters, granddaughters and great-granddaughters for their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother preparing to bid her “Good-bye, until we meet again on the other side . . .”
Love of a dog for his master,
Love of a grandson for his grandfather,
Love of a caregiver for the one to whom she tends.
There were happy tears.
There were sad tears.
In every teardrop there was love,
A love that only the salt in their tears could express.
May each and every one feel blessed
For they learned the most important lesson of this life journey
How to give and take love,
How to know both happy and sad tears
How to live with that love
In good times and in bad
In happy and in sad
For love is the bread of life,
The yolk of all that is, was and ever will be.
May you have the strength to risk loving and losing
So that in the end you will have known and sown love.
