Who are you to me?

… let there be spaces in your togetherness

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you

Love one another, but not make a bond of love

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls

Fill each other’s cup, but drink not from one cup

Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone

Even as the strings of the lute are alone thought they quiver with same music

Give your heart, but not into each other’s keeping

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts

And stand yet not too near together

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow…

  1. Of course the downside of this position about a relationship(s)…is best represented in the African proverb that says…”Moko ke kploto hass kian sito.” or “No one gives a pig to a hyena to keep.” Sharing you love too much may mean you have no love.
