We Dared To Love

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Birth is a treasure
granted the human race
Breath is a pleasure
to sustain inner space
Life is a measure
of our dared playful base

Faith is a treasure
conceived in dependence
Hope is a pleasure
to aver transcendence
Trust is a measure
of our dared confidence

Time is a treasure
there's never enough of
Mirth is a pleasure
to boost spirits above
Grief is a measure
of our dared wish for love
