Tell a story of falling
from being friends to being lovers.
Tell a story of one moment
when I knew we were bound to be together,
without even knowing what that meant.
Falling in love,
not a vat of warm, syrupy goo
to be immersed in.
being an independent individual
to being part of a couple,
widening my circle of awareness.
Tell a story of boy and girl meet,
boy and girl marry,
involving family and friends.
as the circle grows larger,
encompassing more and more people.
Falling in love
happens in a moment,
being in love,
staying in love
is the work of a lifetime.
This is love -
"it is such a joy
that whilst seeking in the world of forms
I found you sitting in my own heart"*
