"Love is a place." First Lady Rachel Jackson

When all is interrupted
After the last Good night,
Things are not ended, but moved
Beyond time and darkness and light.

Until then there is just what we have,
Perhaps not to see the other shore
Perhaps just to stand there waiting
Quietly amazed there is more.

To see life through what it is made of,
To love it while it is,
And then, still loved, to lay it aside,
Would be a fine-great gift.

Time is given as it slips away –
Too precious to be an often-waste.
When all of life is each moment,
And love,
"Love is a place."
