TRUELOVE : The Ultimate Sense of Belonging : A Poem by David Whyte

PoetryGuest WriterComment
The ideal, and sometimes the actual, actuality of finally finding a Truelove. An intuition and a possibility that lives deep in the human heart, whether we find them or no. What is desired in a true love mirrors and magnifies our wish to find a true home in the world, with another, with a work and ultimately with our own sense self. To love and be loved as the ultimate sense of arrival.
— David Whyte



There is a faith in loving fiercely
the one who is rightfully yours,
especially if you have
waited years and especially
if part of you never believed
you could deserve this
loved and beckoning hand
held out to you this way.
I am thinking of faith now
and the testaments of loneliness
and what we feel we are
worthy of in this world.
Years ago in the Hebrides,
I remember an old man
who walked every morning
on the grey stones
to the shore of baying seals,
who would press his hat
to his chest in the blustering
salt wind and say his prayer
to the turbulent Jesus
hidden in the water,
and I think of the story
of the storm and everyone
waking and seeing
the distant
yet familiar figure
far across the water
calling to them
and how we are all
preparing for that
abrupt waking,
and that calling,
and that moment
we have to say yes,
except it will
not come so grandly
so Biblically
but more subtly
and intimately in the face
of the one you know
you have to love
so that when
we finally step out of the boat
toward them, we find
everything holds
us, and everything confirms
our courage, and if you wanted
to drown you could,
but you don't
because finally
after all this struggle
and all these years
you simply don't want to
any more
you've simply had enough
of drowning
and you want to live and you
want to love and you will
walk across any territory
and any darkness
however fluid and however
dangerous to take the
one hand you know
belongs in yours.

The big kicker was how my relationship to Self Love changed. It was amazing.”
During the 21 days, I experienced some very interesting things around my love life, including on the 20th day I found out an X, I used to live with was dating someone else, and I was OK with it. ”
