Love Itself

Love Itself

Everyone is a Baba lover.
Most don't know the phrase

or use the name.  Those who do,
even the ones who consider Him

mad or a fraud, self-indulgent, evil,
love Him and serve Him

in their own limited and inimitable way -
couldn't you say?

Couldn't you grant Him that much?
Everyone loves God, don't they?

Even those who've given up
or never knew or profess not to believe.

What else can love be (and from whence),
what other object can love be for

in the hearts that longeth, the force
that propels all life, all humanity

towards beauty, mercy, perfection, bliss,
an ultimate quenching of loneliness be

but love for God?  The ineliminable
and ubiquitous God and for Love Itself.

O child of God, everyone is a Baba lover,
each in his own limited and inimitable way.
