How long does it take to love somebody?
A minute or a year?
From the start to the finish
But does it really have a beginning or an end?
How long does it take to know you've reached the depths?
Of the soul, of the mind and find yours in theirs?
Or did the universe create, yours and theirs, entwined?
How long does it take to realize?
The ache, the pain are the same as the ecstacy and joy?
Each a part of the other,
Today, tomorrow, forever.
How long does it take to know?
That to truly love is to let go?
To stand at the edge of insanity,
The threshold of lunacy.
Not knowing if they'll return,
If they were meant to be.
Thats all it takes.
Thats what it takes.
Love, sweet love.
I tried hard not to be cliched and post this today...!! But the intoxication of red roses and the high from the chocolates got me all dizzy and poetic!!
Thank you darling!! Grateful for you, to you.
