David’s Valentine

One cannot anticipate its arrival
Nor control its departure’
And yet it’s everywhere
The source of all the life around us
No wonder we let it into our bodies first
Our own and someone else’s
But it refuses to stay there
Nothing if not free
As you make clear
Now you must love the world
As love so loved
It could forget itself
Remembering you
