No Retreat


Retreat

When you love someone, that love has no limit,
no measure, because you know in your depeest being
that when that love demands sacrifice,
you will give it without question.
You will not look for reasons, for justification –
the act of giving, of sacrificing,
is a natural compulsion, like breathing,
and it will, in the end, surprise you
because you did it without second thoughts.
