How beautiful life is, and how rewarding!
All one needs to do is be in love.
People fall in love with little warning;
Praised be those whose loves resilient prove!
Yet love can sometimes be like background music,
The unheard song that gives the moment grace,
Enduring melody for those who choose it,
Needing, wanting love's sustained embrace.
Time and change need not desire chill:
Happiness remains the child of will.
