If It Wasn’t For Love - Poem by Tom Zart
When foulness shadows both mind, heart and soul
That’s when its penalties take their toll.
Adam loved Eve more than any man alive
She defied God now we struggle to strive.
Samson’s love for God broke his chain
As satin’s solders ran to keep from being slain.
David loved Bathsheba no matter night or day
Giving thanks for her as he would kneel and pray.
As life passes by till it’s time to die
We remember every mistake, outcome or lie.
If it wasn’t for love we’d be lonely and sad
With no need to be thankful, happy or glad.
Love is God’s gift to the souls of mankind
Without we lose purpose and feel lost and confined.
Our necessity for others gives us reason to live
A desire to understand, protect and forgive.
