To Share

Why is it, do you think
that those who name us
friends and family
would try to stand
between us now?

Why would they try to stop
this love that flows so free
when all we wish to do
is to share the joy
we have discovered with them?

Is it fear, do you suppose?
that keeps them from exploring
the possibilities
within this love that sets us free

It's so hard to understand
why they only wish to share
their misery
for what is shared looms larger

Wouldn't it be nice
if what they chose to share
were love?
