Sonnet #42: Awash in a tide of love

Each heart's a cavern, awash in a tide of love
that rushes in, glides out, and then returns
to unite this life below with that above:
sweet harmony, for which each being yearns.

From emptiness to full and back again
we cycle through and then go back around
sorrow to hope to joy to loss and then
from grief arise anew, new purpose found.

And in each stage, whatever we might feel --
abandoned, lost, ecstatic or betrayed --
the love continues. Whatever our ordeal,
we're not alone, so do not be afraid.

Just trust that affirmation's always there
and nothing will be more than we can bear.
