Spiritual Love

Spiritual Love

Spiritual love is a love without agenda,

A love without expectations,

An intentionless love.

Spiritual love is making the coffee without request,

Smiling at another when you know she needs,

Just another friend without judgment.

It is waking to the day you are dreading, and still leaving your bed.

Spiritual love is an awakening,

Awakening to the feelings of others,

As if they are your own.

Because now, they are your own.

Spiritual love is doing for others,

When they don’t ask,

Or even know they are in need,

For an unexpected friend, in a day filled with darkness.

Spiritual love is letting God’s love out,

Not waiting for God to come visit,

As He was there all along,

Even if we missed his presence, on an Emmaus walk lasting decades.

Spiritual love is inner peace,

Leaking out controllably,

From a reservoir within I barely noticed;

Only my thirst for its content.

Spiritual love is not controllable,

It has no conditions,

Or expectations,

Just mindful understanding of the moment we are in.


Spiritual Love is our blessed Mother,

It is the sun rising,

The rain on a summers eve,

Crystals of snow on your face.

Spiritual love is most of all,

Oneness with each other,

Of feeling another’s heart as if yours,

Because it is.

Spiritual love is irreversible; and omnipresent.
