Love & togetherness.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness
And let the winds of heaven dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love ;
let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup,
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
But let each one of you alone.
Even as the strings of a flute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping ;
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together,
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the Cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
Its written by Kahlil Gibran, I read it some where and liked it. Its like Chhayavad of Hindi written by the writers like Jayshankar Prasad etc, where human love and love of god are merged together in description.
