Accidental Poet

When Love Comes to Call


You can’t argue with love

If it chooses you

You’ll not know how or why

But you’re sure to feel it too


You’ll feel a vise grip embrace

When love won’t let go

As it devours you entirely

And you feel it grow


One day you realize

 When loves in control

It stares back from your mirror

It’s written in your soul


Through the worst of hardships

Love will prevail

Give it all you can

Set a course and sail


No matter who you are

Love finds you all

Embrace the change in you

When love comes to call

    My favourite poetry is the stuff that makes me smile, and this did, I like the third stanza looking in the mirror and finding love that's so cool. Thank you.

        Thanks Cat. So nice to converse with you again. We both took a break for a while (for various reasons), but writing is something we were born for. ((((hugs)))) to you. ; )

        So very true AP, love is so powerful in our lives.

          What's really sad is that so many people resort to hate instead of love. It just makes no sense. Thanks for the read and note Andy. Much appreciated.
