Diamond Love in the ocean of the universe
“Our love is a diamond in the ocean of the universe”,
a writer wrote in a Grey wall of a peripheral street of my town, on the road that joins the hospital to the big factory.
Near the waters that fall, few minutes before, from the waterfalls …
Many waters cannot quench love, Neither can floods drown it: If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, He would utterly be contemned (Song of Songs 8,7)
I close my heart, I close my eyes, I close every sense of my body.
I feel dark on my mind, I feel empty on my soul, I fell nothing into my hearth.
I’m waiting who this empty can fill on.
You are very far from me in another place not here.
Do you really exist? Are you an illusion? Are you a dream? Are you a sky?
Suddenly a sound:
“You are my Rose of Sharon, And I’ll be your Lily of EinGedi”.
When I ‘ll think about you, I’ll offer you as my Sharon’s rose to God.
When you’ll think about me you should offer me as EinGedi’s lily to God.
And God will see how good it will be.
Because the rose, seeing the lily, will see the son of God;
and the lily seeing the rose, will see the son of God;
You, the son of God and me, together, will be a three-ply cord …
Two are better than one: they get a good wage for their labor. If the one falls, the other will lift up his companion. Woe to the solitary man! For if he should fall, he has no one to lift him up. So also, if two sleep together, they keep each other warm. How can one alone keep warm? Where a lone man may be overcome, two together can resist. A three-ply cord is not easily broken. (Qoehelet 4,9-12)
