On Love, Greener Grass and Kahlil Gibran

by

When I was but young in my relationship – before times were twined with dark and light, hope and despair and words exchanged we both wished were taken back – when I was young, I read this poem of Gibran when looking for Love poetry for my wedding day. I hoped what he said wasn’t true and turned my eyes from the page, looking instead for something more palatable for a wedding reading. Well, today I have come across it, at just such a moment when I have turned my heart towards my husband like the sun and moon turn towards one another to light each other up.
