What is it that we want in our lives?
Is it a human love or a love truly divine?
A love that will see us through thick and thin
Or love that throws all caution to the wind
Do we want love to be a harmonious song
Calmly serenading us till life’s dusk, from dawn
Or do we wish that it be a rock concert lifelong
Perhaps an orchestra that smoothly plays along
Do we want love to be a canoe riding the waves
Tossed excitingly in a turbulent sea full of rage
Or we want it to be a boat anchored safe and secure
Watching life go by from the moonlit sandy shore
Thrills and excitement in life are so transient
That which survives the long haul is worthy and real
Then why for ephemeral joys do we plunge into a sea
Colorful and frisky everything in it though it seems to be
The thrills of going to sea could drown us painfully
Should we then not be anchored to steady love, dutifully?
Composing a Symphony of myriad hues and notes
Finding in it everlasting love, peace and hope.
