Tatiana Guerrier


What is it…
It remains something you take
5,000 words to explain
Then leaves you wondering what it is.

You know the feeling
It’s deep inside your heart
But when you have to explain ‘love’
It’s just not that simple

It’s another one of those
Phenomenal, fascinating things
Which God provided to us

This gift he has given to us
Can’t be replaced by nothing
For we live to be loved by others

If love disappeared
This world would be lost
For without it we are vain
We are dull and dreary

We take this precious gift
And instead of acknowledging
This valuable present
We prefer to misuse it

Love is everything
Without love we all wouldn’t exist
For we are made on behalf of
God’s love for his people

Fairy tale stories
Always end “happily ever after”
But in this universe we live in
Things don’t turn out this way

Love may bring distress and grief
(at times)
Don’t let this stop you
This should not make us give up
For don’t forget…
God never gave up on me, nor on you
So why stop trying on love
Love may be indescribable
But love is not… OBLITERATE
It will always be here
Circulating and surrounding us

Now the question is…
Will you hold on to it?
[Like a baby never let’s go of his blanket]
Or will you shove it away
[Like a child does with food he dislikes]
