There Is No Other Reason To Love


There is no other reason to love.
Or refuse it to abuse.
There is no other reason to love.
Or accuse love,
To misuse.

Too many who receive it,
With an ease of it to get...
Find eventually they feel empty inside,
With a void within them that sits.

Too many have discovered to have it revealed,
Some one who had given a love now dismissed...
But chose they did to throw that love away.
Now distanced but left in their minds to reminisce.

There is no other reason to love.
Or refuse it to abuse.
There is no other reason to love.
Or accuse love to misuse,
When the doing of it comes to give and freely...
To the one who receives it done easily.
There is no other reason to love.
But the accepting of it becomes a game too many play.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
