What Is - Poem by Thomas C. Lively

What is Love
Who among us can say
Who is the expert
What is the name
Or all we the same?
Where is Love
Where does it reside
Hidden within our mind
Lodged upon the heart
Sudden ache when far apart?
Could it rest within our soul
Or deeply abide
With our nebulas spirit
Who can tell or explain
What book can make it plain?
If we fall in Love
Where have we come
To have made it so
Why cannot we rise in Love
As the secret symboled dove?
When we Love someone
Who Loves us not
Is it then we are torn
To reckon a broken heart
As pierced by the cast dart?
