What Is Love - Poem by Colin Coplin

Love
What is love
What does it do
And where do you find it

Is it simply a dream
Something to believe in
An imagined thing
Or simply fill in words for people to sing

Love
What is love
What does it do
And where do you find it

I’ve walked the galleries
Images of love hang on the wall
I’ve read books
By artists who carved their initials on my soul

Does it always stay
Or does it fade away
Does it bring you joy
Or is it just a toy, to play with

Love
People in love
How can they tell
A feeling words can’t spell
A funny sort of hell
Maybe it’s just as well
Who would throw coins into a wishing well, if they knew.

Love
Why is love
Is love clear
Something you give, or something you share
Is it just lust
You take for granted like air

Love, what is love
What is love
What does it do
And where do you find it

It is easy to see
Why love has lasted eternity
For love given freely
Is such a precious thing
When you find it
And I found it with you
