Love Won’t Protect Us From The Evil All Around

Love won’t protect us from the evil all around
It won’t protect out children from the dangers that abound
Love won’t guarantee a life of happy endings
Or that when it’s given it will be returned
We want love to make us happy
To fill the void within
To keep our hearts from hurting
Bring loneliness to an end
But love isn’t an umbrella
It’s not a protective sphere
It isn’t a magnet
To bring those we love near
Love intensifies our pain
When we lose someone dear
It leaves us empty and hollow
When evil gets too near
Yet it heals the broken hearted
Brings laughter to the soul
When everything in life goes wrong
Love can make you whole
