Does it happen or do we fall in love?
Have wondered often about this trope.
Was it created to baffle humanity or
Test its power?
Can't really say if it is a stable force or
A whirlwind that takes its toll.
It carries us off into a new world
Whether to make or mar we cannot tell.
Those smitten by it are lost only to be redeemed,
Those spared by it can only regret
For if there is redemption it is always
The sanctity of faith and surrender
Make us blessed.
May true love be the haven
Of all of us.
Love be the guiding spirit in life
So that we learn the ultimate lesson of life.
