When Love Finds its Way In

When loves finds its way in, it never leaves me

My heart is protected by barbed wire and steel

A walled-up structure surrounded by neon signs

“Keep out,” “No service,” “Private property,” “No trespassing,”

And yet, you found a way through, gently and true.

I trust in the power of warmth that melts away defenses

I believe in what transpires behind the curtains of our pain

The reasons why and how and when our lives align

No matter the change of seasons or the passage of time.

There are no barriers when love enters in,

No room to reject the sources that heal us

No reason for anything, dear soul, but understanding

Because love evolves as it goes, it takes on many forms

It becomes what it needs to in our waves and storms.

When loves finds its way in, it never leaves me,

The trail you blazed to reach my unreachable heart

Is a groove indented, a pathway forever accessible by you

An offering of support always there, never imposed

A place of peace, a door never closed.
