Why I Love You - Poem by Brandon Owens

The planets travel around the sun
And the moon around the earth
The stars shine bright in the sky
Because this is how it all works
So how can you ask me why
When it is simply my nature

Would you ask my heart to stop
Or my lungs to quit breathing
You could try telling the ocean
To stop its heaving and hoing
I'm sure these will keep going
So I will continue on loving

You can tear apart a mountain
But the pieces are still there
I still remember it with care
Time is the record of change
Yet the laws of the universe
Will always stay the same

That is why I love you
And nothing you can do
Will ever change the truth

    A process of verifying ones passion by analyzing the law of nature. Well. If you can give yourself without hankering return which nature always teaches us, your mission will be achieved.
    Thank you, write more
