Our Home

We can stop love from smiling to us,
and we can prevent it from doing favors.
We can chase it away
and never open the door to it.

But we can not prevent love
from weeping for our wounds
and from forgiving all the time.

We can never stop it
from dreaming beautiful dreams,
from seeing the beauty of our soul.

We can not prevent it
from crying for us in the silence of the night,
secretly calling angels to be there with us.

We can not prevent it
from weeping when we face sorrows
longing for the time when we smile again.

We can reject love
but love never rejects us.
We can silence it and it is silent
while it leads us home.
