I Love

I love
I need not prove it
nor have I need of a receptacle

I love
That must forever be enough
When others choose to share this love
to help me make it grow
I will accept
but when others take this love from me
and turn it into pain and rage and sorrow
I must move away
to discover yet again
that still,
I love

I love
beyond manipulation
or outer machinations
I love deep and I love true
for this love flows through and through
the height and depth and essence of my being
so that even when I stand alone
I love

for this is the meaning
my reason for being
to love…
