Be Left Wanting

Be Left Wanting
Scott David James
circa 2005

Love is a blessing to restore the soul
When it finds you wanting
It can make you whole
The light shone in darkened hours
Sun and rain for withered flowers
Love is not blind
Nor fleeting
Its passage well within discovery’s meaning
Love
Although seemingly
Is not magic
Nor cosmic force without definition
Love is defined by respect
A moral standard
A relation
Admiration
In this, love breathes equality
Not unconditionally
It lies within the conditions of logic
A definition within the confines of moral selfishness
The selfishness that declares;
     This is real, good and productive within my soul
     Therefore, I love!
Love is a statement
A declaration for sight
And ability
And is defined within each soul
Individually
Indivisibly
Distinguishably.
Love is your own to behold
Define it without reason
And be left wanting for all seasons
