Moments Of Love

No matter how pervasive it seems today…no matter how much it tears our world apart…
I will not allow hate to blacken my soul…I will not allow it to infringe on my heart.

Instead I will look for moments of love….I will allow love to muffle the hate…
I will look for these moments wherever I can…and it's these moments I will celebrate.

I will look for people holding hands with each other.
I will find a person soothing another who cries.
I will find two lovers embracing…and I will discover the love in their eyes.

I will watch people dancing together.
I will watch others sway to the music…or kiss.
I will see two old friends come together…and listen in as they reminisce.

I will find someone helping a stranger…I will watch as flowers or candy impress…
I'll watch a silent exchange of tenderness…in a gentle touch..or a loving caress.

I will watch a man put his head on his wife's tummy and suddenly become aware
that he's about to become a father…that there's a new life growing in there.

I'll watch another mother listen to a woman's chest and smile as she becomes aware
that her son's heart is making a wonderful sound…her son's heart…that was transplanted there.

I will find couples watching a sunrise…eating a romantic dinner for two…
Families hugging…watching a sunset…
and I'll listen for the words…'I Love You.'

It's amazing when you seek out moments of love…
how quickly you become aware
that you don't have to search very far…very wide…
for moments of love can be found everywhere.

Moments of love so universal they will comfort our minds…
as they strengthen our hearts and our souls…
For I believe…no matter how much hate tries to tear us apart…
Moments of love will keep our world whole.
