Love is Dangerous

When for a lifetime she says she loves you
and 45 years later, she reveals the handicap is an issue,
love is dangerous.

When all her life she has baited and barked with her words
and one day she says “I love you” after the imprint of her hands left bruises,
love is dangerous.

When he charms his way in your door and your life
and he runs away seconds after the pleasure has come and gone,
love is dangerous.

When Love beckons with acceptance and grace
and shines the Light upon you as a gift and a blessing,
love is dangerous.

When Love whispers “I love you” with peace and healing
through that still small voice and through the written Word,
love is dangerous.

When Love is ever present and always faithful and true
even in the dark of night as in the brightness of day,
love is dangerous.

When she listens patiently and compassionately
even though she’s heard the story a thousand times,
love is dangerous.

When she crawls into your lap and molds her tiny toddler body to yours
and giggles and exclaims and questions and sighs along with the video,
love is dangerous.

When he laughs with you and with unspoken assent begins to pray
while the tale of woe and unbelievable comedy of errors unfolds,
love is dangerous.

Love is dangerous when shared in purity, for it allows you to believe again.
Love is dangerous when given faithfully, for it opens the door for trust.

Love is dangerous when it flows unconditionally, for its message is grace.
Love is dangerous when it bathes over you, for its effect is healing.

Love is dangerous when HE promises good, for the future is an exercise of faith.
Love is dangerous when HE washes clean, for then life is continual forgiveness.

Love is dangerous, for Love requires that you embrace life in abundance.
Love is dangerous, for Love abolishes the excuse for running after death.
