Love alone is not enough
visions of the heart and mind
must somehow become real
as moment to moment
the love is allowed in space and time

and minute by minute
adjustments are made to allow
another's totality to touch
and therefore influence our own

and as with every other thing in life
a balance must be attained
and once attained, maintained
that satisfies the many parts
comprising each of us

as day by day, we each,
in total
become more and more
of all that is

then holding a hand becomes essential
as mind and body and spirit grow
for without it
we may never touch again...
