Sweet Somethings


We whispered
sweet somethings
in each others'
ears,
For the “nothing”
of love
is all that lasts
through the years.

And even love
that is "lost"
has more “something”,
than a fortune
handed down
through generations
of the citizens
“of substance”.

Though unlike
the parable
of the camel
and the needle,
I know there are
many of those
“fortunate”,
who would toss
all their jewels
away just to hear,
love’s
“sweet nothings’ ”
warm breath
on their ear.

For Love
is always
God,
no matter
whose heart
has sent it.

And Love
is always
the heart’s
inhabitant,
no matter how life
has bent it.
