Love works like this

No one is ever yours.

You are not the keeper of a spirit,

nor the jailer of a soul.

You get to love them,

in doing that, you love everyone who has ever loved that person.

Even when you don’t like their loved ones, you love everyone

who guided this person to you,

who lit the way and led them into your arms.

  1. YOU HAVE DEFINITIONS LIKE AN OLD WISE DICTIONARY. I’m amazed, you’re young, yr face shows no years that wisdom needs for blossuming/ most think that love,precious love, can forever be a foggy mystery (& maybe a bumpy road in it) Fine job, ms McGrath, impressive. g.r.
