poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

love is the only future God offers      – Victor Hugo





 This is my commandment, 
         that you love one another as I have loved you.

                  —John 15.12
that is, 

with tender attention

and stout resilience,

that is,

despite your blame and fear,

your betrayal yet to come,

your lack of repentance,
as I have loved you

when you were determined 

not to deserve it,
that you love as I have,

withholding nothing,

excusing no one,
that you pour yourself out

for everyone, 
as I have 

pour yourself out

of your life

into eternal love

and as I have




in love.
