the greatest things come from love,
I've witnessed whole miracles stem
from the fact that somebody
had someone to love them.
with love we find happiness,
sorrow, passion, intimacy, friendship,
willingness to give
willingness to be vulnerable, be our one true self.
there are different types of love,
romantic, friendship, the love of a mother to her child.
all bold and beautiful
all willing to risk it all for one another, without trial.
the way I love you is complicated,
simple words don't do it much justice.
but if I know not a single thing else in the world
I know enough to trust this.
if disease came rampant,
and locusts ate all of the trees tonight
if bombs rocked the sturdy walls of our houses
and shook our fragile perception of life
if the waves came to swallow the continents
and fires burned forever in the sky
if everything we know starts falling apart around us
the only place I'd want to be
is by your side.
