Contemplative Love

You press a hand upon your chest and say
the name of someone dear to you and hold
an image of them in your heart, the way
you’d keep within a treasure chest some gold.
You say that you are them and they are you,
although it seems you’re different and apart.
You feel this separateness just isn’t true,
and two of you are one within your heart.
You deeply breathe while holding them within
and wish them every blessing with your care
and know you’re not just simply friends or kin
but mingled like the fragrances in air.
You press your hand upon your chest and pray
that love shine on your loved one like a ray.

Contemplative Love
