Together, Life Is No More Than a Dance

Together, Life Is No More Than a Dance

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

What would you do for those you love
I have heard it many times
how can know your limits
unless life hands you a heavy fate
sometimes a kiss is not enough to reassure
sometimes words are not enough for salvation
life is a balance and love is an art
how to find the key to both
perhaps it is to remember the soul
rises above life's ruins 
the heart stays bonded 
even in chaos
true love is to know
we are part of the journey
not just destination or goal
nothing is given to you for free
a wise, loved man once told me
it takes work, hard work at times
to earn what we need and deserve
it takes courage to swim the depths
of a lonely hour or to feel free together
true love is to be so open that light
can enter the most damaged crack
it is to feel their pain
to make sure they stay sane
in bitter storms of vehement rain
it is to simply see the higher self
in any given circumstance
only then will love be given the chance
to survive and accept the dance
of life

I love your take on the emotion of love
So real and filled with truth
everyone is just loud and just ridiculous when it comes to feelings

i see love
as the silence
between two that grows into just complete comfort
and just knowing what that person needs and rushing to their place with it

i see love like that
