I am love

27dec-22

I AM LOVE

You will find me sparkeling
in your lover’s eyes.
In his touch, in the way he smiles.
But you also find me in the darkest hour
as life fades like a withering flower.

You find me in your mother’s tired eyes
as she hardly remembers, but always tries.
You find me in your father’s worn out hands,
in his cares without demands.

Just look around you
in the shades of everyday.
I’m not always glowing,
I could hide in the darkest grey.

I could be shining
like the stars in the sky.
But I’m also the glitter
in the simplest wink of an eye.

Just always remember
to give me away,
and I will grow bigger
and bigger every day.

THROUGH EVERYTHING / GENOM ALLT

In English and Swedish

THROUGH EVERYTHING

There is a core
that shines through everything.
It is wider and deeper
than all thoughts,
all memories, all senses.

You perceive it,
short moments,
when the sun shines
through the shadows of your life.

The core is love,
our eternal longing.
It is not magic,
it is simply the reason
for everything.

*
GENOM ALLT

Det finns en kärna
som lyser genom allt
Den är större och djupare
än alla tankar, alla minnen,
alla känslor.

Du anar den
ett kort ögonblick
när solen lyser genom skuggorna i ditt liv.

Kärnan är kärleken
vår eviga längtan.
Det är inte magi,
bara förklaringen
till allt.

/Ilse-Marie/
