We are a gift

We are a gift,

One to another.

Each gives freely of who they are,

without reserve,

without hesitation.

The melding of two persons

Into something new,

Something hoped for,

Something synergistic,


Whole and complete in it's new self,

Comes only in freely offering

The gift of the death of the individual self.

The voluntary sacrifice of singleness

On the altar of oneness

Is the gift of life, of breath, of health,

To a new existence.

I cease to exist as I now am

Without the gift of her.

She loses all her current identity

Without the gift of me.

Together we give each other presence.

We are a gift,

One to another.
