Love Is The Reason

This poem is from Chapter 12: Love, the Eternal Quest (Iron, not Wood).



Love is the Reason

Love is the only reason for life
Love makes life’s colors vibrant
Love adds music to the noise
Love brings flavor and taste to the buds
Love is electricity that makes you feel
Love is aroma that drowns out the stench of life

Love brings breathless anticipation
Love makes us taller, steps filled with spring
Love makes us bolder, confident in partnership
Love makes us stronger, as deep breath rushes oxygen to our soul
Love makes us selfless, as we begin to understand that life is meaningless alone
