Why is the path to true love
Fraught with dangers, thorny paths, and mountains high?
Why do we have to suffer so much
Even when we find the one we love?
Why is the world of emotion so complicated?
Why cant we design a computer program for love?
Make a spread sheet of pros and cons
A logical way to judge what our heart desires
Why aren’t computers smart enough
To help us with this complicated equation called love?
Why do pain and joy intertwine
In this crazy thing called love?
Why can’t we just live as monks and nuns
That way we wouldnt have to worry about love!
There is a yearning in our hearts
We need love
True love is like water
To the thirsty one
We are drawn to the lucid spring of love
Even as a thirsty one wondering in the desert of life
Once we see the face of the beloved
Its imprinted in our hearts
All the reasoning in the world
Is unable to change our mind
Love does blind us
To the loved ones faults
Others will tell us this or that
But we are not sure what planet they are from!
Our heart longs to be with our loved one
Our heart only sees the beautiful qualities
Of the one we love
We would swim an ocean or desert cross
Without a thought
Without a doubt!
The people who love us try to tell us
To be careful not to drown, not to fall!
Sometimes we listen, sometimes we don’t
Love is blind, after all!
But true love stands the test of time
This love doesnt die because of trials
One can lose battles, but one wins the war
To be united with the loved one
This thing called love
For which blood has been shed time after time
This magical force
Is one we can’t live without
The path never easy
But worth the fight!
Life would not be worthwhile!
