“I surrender in the valley of love…”

heartpurple

“I was going to tell you my story

but waves of pain drowned my voice.

I tried to utter a word but my thoughts

became fragile and shattered like glass
.
Even the largest ship can capsize

in the stormy sea of love,

let alone my feeble boat

which shattered to pieces leaving me nothing

but a strip of wood to hold on to.

Small and helpless, rising to heaven

on one wave of love and falling with the next

I don’t even know if I am or I am not.

When I think I am, I find myself worthless,

when I think I am not, I find my value.

Like my thoughts, I die and rise again each day

so how can I doubt the resurrection?

Tired of hunting for love in this world,

at last I surrender in the valley of love

and become free.”
