We Need One Another by George E. Odell
We need one another when we mourn and would be comforted.
We need one another when we are in trouble and afraid
We need one another when we are in despair, in temptation, and need to be recalled to our best selves again.
We need one another when we would accomplish some great purpose, and cannot do it alone
We need one another in the hour of success, when we look for someone to share our triumphs We need one another in the hour of defeat, when with encouragement we might endure, and stand again
We need one another when we come to die, and would have gentle hands prepare us for the journey
All of our lives we are in need, and others are in need of us.through all time.
Speak To Us of Love, from The Prophet by Kahil Gibran
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, ï¿½God is in my heart,ï¿½ but rather, ï¿½I am in the heart of God.ï¿½ And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate loveï¿½s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise on your lips.
Because She Would Ask Me why I Loved Her by Christopher Brennan
If questioning could make us wise
no eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
if all our tale were told in speech
no mouths would wander each to each.
Were spirits free from mortal mesh
and love not bound in hearts of flesh
no aching breasts would yearn to meet
and find their ecstasy complete.
For who is there that loves and knows
the secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
to thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?
Then seek not, sweet, the If and Why
I love you now until I die:
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.
