(Dance between Love and Death)


Love is a gift not meant 
to keep

Cherished for the moment 
Then released 

If by choice or not
intent

As fleeting as time in each second 
spent

It's as strong as the will of 
a heart

Or as delicate as a breath 
that departs

It can rage like a great winter
storm

Or the spark of an ember that flitters
with warmth

A full life lived to Eternity; is like a single
grain of sand 

With endless possibilities, for which there
Is no truer end

So seize this brevity as a gift so brief and 
yet so true

And paint the world in all your colors in a 
loving portrait of you

Yes, we need to share our art, and our love of creation, to get the best out of it. "A joy shared is a joy doubled" as the old saying goes! A good, creative poetic piece, Carlos!
