Love

I am like an Eclipse, consistent in my arrivals.

I come when it is time to present myself

and I depart when it is time to Leave.

 

My beauty is unknown to young eyes

but for those who have caught a glimpse, there is anticipation .

When the time is right, I show myself.

I shine to overcome the darkness of the night.

 

At times I am unexpected.

My presence is most often, awaited,

though I don't come often.

There are feelings that resemble me

yet they are not as pure, nor true.

 

Even when you can no longer see me, I am there,

out in space preparing to appear again 

and open the eyes of someone else.

 

And if there was a name by which I would want to be called, it would be safe to call me, Love.
