out life
there can
be no death
without life
there can be no
love without love
death can fill our
life with fear but
love and fear are not
inevitable love conquers
fear as light darkness
love fills the pool of
life with purpose and
succour and passion
for the journey of
life which can
only ever have
one end but
love can
yet be

I can see this as a face/profile speaking these loving words... or womanly breast, heavenly source of love and nourishment.
