It Is Not A Number, Not Even A Word, It Is What It Is... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the heart that loves
does not quit

the heart that loves what it does
does not stop doing

even if it is unfair
even if it feels cheated

the heart that loves still keeps on doing what it loves
even if it does not reap what it sows

the heart that loves keep on loving
even if the beloved leaves it for another even if the beloved dies...

the heart that loves what it is doing keeps on doing it
because it loves and love is not measured

it is not a number, not even a word, it is what it is...
it is what it ceaselessly does, despite everything...
