The Importance Of Love

The Importance Of Love

What on earth is more important than love

Betcha can't name a single thing

It keeps this old world spinning round and round

That's the way it is, that's how it's always been

Can you imagine a world without love

It's surely not somewhere I'd wanna be

Ship me off to the heavens to explore other worlds

This would no longer be home to me

Always been a lover, not a fighter

But I guess it's part of the human condition

Good or bad, agree or disagree, it's who we are

We are either happy and content with life

Or we're unhappy and hate the hand we've been dealt

Thankfully I've been blessed and am in the former category

I live and love life to the fullest every single day

Each moment is precious, to be enjoyed

Our final day is a mystery, it's unknown to us

Sure wouldn't want to know that day anyway

Can you imagine the feeling of dread as it drew near

The days dwindling down, getting forever fewer

That's when love is most important

To be surrounded by caring family and friends

That's when we surely will know

The importance of love

I totally agree Jack. Buddha says we are all made from our attachments- the pinnacle of our being lies with love. A very nice piece.
