Love's empathy

I may be following or perhaps ahead
but I'm here, always here, and not yet dead
to the birth of heartache in one not yet of age.

The young and the old; how special the day
when love paves the way for the sharing of pain
and as empathy joins two breaking hearts
the bond between souls is confirmed and defined
and remains forever inviolate.

The physical showing of love's empathy
in the touching of arms, bodies, cheeks, tears,
lights a candle beneath the healing process
and lays a foundation for honesty's growth.

But to be like a man on the sidelines withdrawn
from the cause and effect of it all
leads only to isolation and no true company
in the forever and permanent world
of the spirit community ...
perceived to be real by the magic in me!
