I have searched and read and plodded,
through books and places and time.
Blindly searching for the answers,
to this feeling which is mine
I would travel unto the ends of the earth,
in places most perilous and dire.
Herein lies the question,
of this burning fire.
So I sat and donned my thinking cap,
to figure out this riddle ,
no fear of the cost.
For you see if I cannot
my sanity ,
surely will be lost
In my mind I've pondered this ,
over and over again,
Probably at least a million times,
honestly no more than ten.
I was thinking about the longing,
ache and loneliness,
when at my minds door ,
my heart ,
it did knock.
Non sense ,
I am sure with reason
this mystery to unlock.
At once my heart broke down the door
betwixt it and my mind.
Listen to me just this once,
not your thoughts at all this time.
Then the answer came shining, clear
from far up above.
The answer all so hard to figure out,
was simply it was Love
