ENDURING LOVE – by Kurt April (25th November 2014, Constantia)


I learnt that mature love

Depended on your willingness

Your willingness to engage, deeply

You taught me that mature love required patience

Waiting for your readiness, our readiness

Readiness to respond

Readiness to give

I had to choose to be meek, to be vulnerable

Not knowing what would happen

In order to find the powerful – You

It was a conscious choice, a mature choice

And it required a handing over of power

To surrender to something greater

To surrender to life itself

A mature relatedness

Long-lasting commitment

Never a false surrender

Never an insincere gesture

Now, our joint love seeks to bring contribution to society

A creation, possibilities, a larger whole

But remains a paradoxical condition of strength

Which only emerges through continuous yielding
