“And think not you can direct the course of love,
for love, if it finds you worthy,
directs your course”.
~ Khalil Gibran
I’ve been lucky in love
when I kept the door open
waited for whispers
message unspoken,  
Letting go of neediness
without hesitation,
trusting abundance
the source of creation,  
I’ve been lucky in love  
I’ve been lucky in love,
when I let her find me;
when my eyes stop searching,
my heart learns to see.   
Diving in deep
taking a chance,
hearing the music
feeling the dance  
I’ve been lucky in love.
I’ve been lucky in love
receiving makes me strong
giving without measure
where devotion belongs   
Love isn’t what I pray for
but where I pray from
where the beat of my heart
is the sound of your drum  
I’ve been lucky in love.  
Believing is the key that opens the door,
behind those walls of only-ness
fear dies on the floor  
Yearning to belong is learning to let go,
you have answers to your prayers,
understand what you know,
trust in your wisdom,
To be lucky in love.

Author Notes 

There is much ado about love. Millions of songs, books and poems are devoted to this topic with instructions on how to find it, how to keep it, how to spice it up and lastly how to walk away from it. The consistent message is that the love of your life is “out there” however the reality is that love is not out there, it exists within us, and sometimes dormant for a very long time. William Blake stated; “A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees”, and so it is in love’s domain, fools rush into the forest looking for the trees.

To be lucky in love is a bit of an oxymoron; it really has nothing to do with luck but implies a willingness to risk, to give without expectations or measure and trusting that the act of giving love is the only thing that makes love real. There is something masochistic about hoarding our love. When we allow love to flow from us and through us the world feels like a friendlier place. We feel enriched and sated beyond any materialist wanting, we experience exponentially the spiritual understanding of the heart; lucky in love.
