THE STORY OF LOVE:  BY LINET KANANA
 
Some say they walked into love
Others say it crept in on them
Catching them completely off guard
Some believe it fought its way into their 
hearts
What is your story of love?
 
My friend says she stumbled and fell into 
it
My sister voluntarily jumped into it
My brother grew into it
While my grandmother? She found 
herself in it
What is your story of love?
 
Similar strands bind the stories together,
…the smile when they narrate their story
The dreamy look in their eyes
The confidence in their voices that say’’ I 
have found the real deal’’
This is the love story!
 
Amazing how the clouds fade and 
everything looks more beautiful
How everything smells much better and 
even tastes sweeter
All over Sudden we notice the colours 
dancing around us, there is a rainbow in 
the cloud!
We take note of the smiles of kind 
neighbours, even their annoying dog 
suddenly looks better
We notice the children playing cheerfully 
on the streets, and their noise sounds 
beautiful!
This is the love story!
 
The songs sound clearer the loads 
become lighter
The grass seems greener and prettier and 
we notice the flowers on the paths
The raindrops tenderly kiss our skin as 
listen to the whispers in the wind
The head stands higher, the eyes shine 
brighter, there is Laughter in our voice 
and smiles linger on
Body, soul and spirit, unite in perfect 
harmony,, when you have a story about 
love
 
Whether you fall or grow in love
Whether it creeps in you simply find 
yourself in it
Hold on to it, celebrate it and write your 
story of love!
