The Resaon I Was Born


If the world would ever end
Tomorrow in the morn,
I’d hold your hand and know
The reason I was born.

I was born to love you
With every beat of my heart.
And if the world just faded away
It could never tear us apart.

For we would travel far and beyond
From this world we know.
And take our love along with us
Wherever it is we go.

If the stars in the sky all went out
And darkened in the night.
The light of the love I feel for you
Would create its own sweet light.

For you my love came into my life
And made me feel complete.
So if the world could be no more
It still could not defeat

My purpose for living and loving you.
It doesn’t have that power.
For all things end and new things start
And in the world’s darkest hour

I’d feel your love and you’d feel mine
And I’d know that on that morn
It could never fade into nothing
For it’s the reason I was born.

    This is very lovely Hon. Poet. We are all
    born with a purpose whether most of us
    believe it or not. Everyone must find their
    niche in life. All have a need to love and
    to be loved. Very romantic (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
