Except for loving, love will cease

"It doesn't matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn't matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years -- we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on."--Sharon Salzberg

Except for loving, love will cease
To find for its offender's path;
But brings the best that it can give--
The Love in all its aftermath.

Except for loving, love will die
A very senseless death of all;
But Love is the Fountain of Life--
It gives itself and gives the full.

Except for loving, love will fade
And spread itself in the darkness;
But Love is Love and Love will be:
A thing for all the completeness.
