Love calls us to be present
out of the depths of ourselves.
No matter where we have been,
it beckons us from the world of worry,
doubt, and brooding
into the world of the Beloved.
It asks us to be faithful to it
through all trials and tribulations,
to give the best of ourselves to love
for love's sake,
for life's sake,
and because it is more real
than all that is not love.
