Short Zen Love Poem

Love I was gone before I met you

Checked out, shoulders slumped, resigned and blue

Now I am all in since I met you

Awake now, head raised, aligned, and true

Simple graces to you love

May the air be sweet and clean

May you life consist of

Things true to what your core means

Quiet and ignite

Dampen and alight

Fight and quell

In the middle

All is well

In the end I have nothing to give you

But everything you’ve always had
