Song of Love XXIV – Khalil Gibran 🌼🌼

I am the Truth

I am the lover’s eyes and the spirit’s Wine and the heart’s nourishment.

I am a rose.

My heart opens at dawn, and The virgin kisses me and places me Upon her breast. I am the house of real fortune, and the Origin of pleasure, and the beginning Of peace and tranquillity. I am the gentle Smile upon his lips of beauty. When youth Overtakes me, he forgets his toil, and his Whole life becomes the reality of sweet dreams. I am the poet’s delight, And the artist’s revelation, And the musician’s inspiration. I am a sacred shrine in the heart of a Child, adored by a merciful mother. I appear to a heart’s cry; I shun a demand; My fullness pursues the heart’s desire; It shuns the empty claim of the voice. I appeared to Adam through Eve And exile was his lot, Yet I revealed myself to Solomon, and He drew wisdom from my presence. I smiled at Helena, and she destroyed Tarwada, Yet I crowned Cleopatra and peace dominated The Valley of the Nile. I am like the ages — building today And destroying tomorrow; I am like a god, who creates and ruins; I am sweeter than a violet’s sigh; I am more violent than a raging storm. Gifts alone do not entice me; Parting does not discourage me; Poverty does not chase me; Jealousy does not prove my awareness; Madness does not evidence my presence. Oh, seekers, I am Truth, beseeching Truth; And your Truth in seeking and receiving And protecting me shall determine my Behavior. ~ Song of Love XXIV – Khalil Gibran


Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
