says love

“do not grieve for me,” says love
i am not something you own
i am in you as i choose to be
as you choose to be
you cannot command me to stay
nor force me to leave
i am in your fingertips
in the synapses of your brain
i am there when a tear falls
when the wind caresses the leaves in the night
when a newborn opens its eyes for the first time
i am there in grief
and when death beckons closer
i will not lose you even if you abandon me
i am with you as i choose to be
as you choose to be
