Love’s Surprise

Spread Some Joy Today > Allowing > Love’s Surprise

I thought the point was happiness,
but my heart
was seeking Love.

Then the goal became success,
but my heart
was seeking Love.
Finally, I hoped for peace,
but my heart
was seeking Love.

In the end my heart prevailed;
Love became my goal.
How? Where?
“Love others and they will love you,"
I was told,
but often they did not.
“Give love and it will return to you,"
but often it did not.
What then is the secret?

Then Love answered,
“Don't wait on love
from this or that person;
receive love from
where it is given."

“See how this blooming daisy
offers its love,
how the smile
of a stranger,
the kindness of a friend,
the glory of the sunrise
love you?"

And I began to learn
Love is offered throughout my day;
my heart can be filled by
unexpected bits of love
from here, from there,
if I but have eyes to see
and heart to receive.
