Love is the Answer

You aren’t blind to the pain in the world The sorrow and sadness, worry and dread The fears that overtake hearts And dissuade dreams from being said You aren’t someone who ignores the facts The arguments for reality’s doubts The burdens of concern that cover love And darken the light that falls across hearts You know the truth of life’s heartbreaks Yet you never allow this actuality to get in the way Of your love, your light, your laughter – your insight You still give without expectation and live Without giving in to the suspicions of distrust You listen to your heart and follow your dreams You welcome friendship and kindness and feelings You hope and believe, have faith in the tomorrows Who bring you renewal, fresh faith and a belief That carries you away into silent reveries of grace You are warm and kind – with a heart that delights In giving generously, with a hand that is open To presenting joy with unending faith in the knowing That LOVE is the answer to every prayer breathed
