One drop of water

You marry to give your beloved
and your children comfort and protection
as a pledge for piously sustained security,
but without children and without security
the marriage pledge is only a formality
of emptiness and no significance,
while your relationship depends on love alone
that is the more significant and stressed
and more important to sustain.

That is my sport, my love,
to keep up all the love there is
between us and between our earth and heaven
as a universal matter of significance
not just for us but for the cultivation of all love
around the world that everyone is most dependent on,
love being everything and everyone dependent on it,
while we bring our contribution to the sea
in form of our love's drop of water
adding to the ocean's constant flowing
all around the world of love and life,
while not a single drop of it is worthless
but a microcosmos in itself
containing all the world and universe of love.

profoundly written a drop be no less part of the ocean
as love can not be quantified.

beautifully written piece Christian. One drop so small in its physicality but so large in its true worth in changing the world.
