Will I ______ Love? - Poem by Bill Darrah

Will I______ Love?
Will I ______ love?
What is _____ love?
I am ______ love.
How do I represent love?

What is it about a woman
That loves? -Her heart
Or her very being, radiating
With love that never separates
At birth, both to a mother and to the other
Love she seeks in man? Moreover,
It is man who seeks the love he knows nothing about.
Woman merely softens her being of love
To allow her heart to be still, tuned to the sound
And quiver that love fills when man discovers
Woman for the first time.

The only way that
I am _____ love
Is through woman, since woman is love.

So I ask myself again,
Will I _____ love?
Will I find my heart, which is hidden
Among other organs that aren't
Even close to being
As vital to my health as the
Heart is beating?
If and when I find it, will I hold onto it?
Will I tell love
To make herself known, so that I might
Learn what love is, what she feels like, and
What she is capable of achieving
In my heart that I take for granted way too often.
A much better question than
What is _____ love, therefore, is
What is _____ woman?

She is the best thing that happened to man.
She is the emotion that man lacks.
She is the reason love is in the world.
She is love, after all.
Without her, man dies.
Without her, love is lost and confused.
Without her, hope fades away..........

I Am ________.

I am _____ love.
I am _____ compassion.
I am _____ comfort.
I am _____ delicate and fragile.
I am _____ the woman you long for.

I am here for you to call upon
When you need a prayer and a song.
I am here to forgive your wrongs
To help you feel confident and strong.
I know every thought that you have.
I can see it in your eyes.
You don't have to tell me any lies
To impress me.
I like who I see in the real you,
Which I trust will always be
The 'you' you want me to see.


Author Notes
--------------------
The empty blanks or lines are there for the reader to either leave empty or to fill in with his or her own personalized adjectives or verbs describing his or her intentions for expressing love. Also, I hope you the reader will notice how I wanted to use the idea of personification by saying how love was actually a woman through the phrase, 'Will I tell love to make herself known, so that I might learn what love is, what she feels like, and what she is capable of achieving.'
