Some Valentine Adoptions
For Barbara
from your Secret Cupid


by Kahlil Gibran

The power to
Love is God's greatest gift to man,
For it never will be taken from the
Blessed one who loves.

Love lies in the soul alone,
Not in the body, and like wine
Should stimulate our better self
To welcome gifts of Love Divine.

Love that is cleansed by tears
will remain eternally pure and beautiful

"Love joins our present
with the past and the future."

"Love is the blind ignorance
with which youth begins and ends."

"Love is a wine served by the brides of Dawn
which strengthens strong souls
and enables them to ascend to the stars."
