The world is ending and all we can do is love.


The world is ending and all we can do is love. 
Else we be forgotten and lost to stream.
All that passes does so too quickly.
Why should we spend the moment sulking?
*
Burdened with burdens not my own I feel strong.
Look away from anger into my eyes and listen, “All that matters is, I know your name.”
The world is ending and all we can do is love. 
*
In the cold we are warmed by your thoughts.
In the fire we’re sheltered by your gaze.
I will love in the face of endings or be ended.
This is blinding light to all that mean harm.
The world is ending and all we can do is love.
*
This is our freedom from want, to give.
Make the pilgrimage by being reconciled to truths we’d rather not.
Caring for what matters most we shed the empty to find soul. 
The world is ending and all we can do is love.
