Love Found Me

by Susanjohn

Love first appeared, a cradled babe, 
held within my Mother's arms. 
Those selfless acts,
nourished the years... 

Love ~ brought me there.

At times a lonely road, 
stepping into the unknown. 
My dearest friend,  
took my hand,
again, led me home... 

Love ~  rescued me there. 

Love's steady assurance, 
comforting rest; 
Two beating hearts,
now breathe as one.
While looking to the stars...

Love ~ embraced me there. 

This journey through life, 
a kaleidoscope in motion... 
Beautiful moments ease throbbing heartaches.
A simple smile, 
the warmest hug;

Love ~ held me there. 

So, when I travel the end of my road, 
and seedlings sprout 'neath my steps... 
Fall to my knees – a thankful soul, 

Love promised ~  to welcome me there.
