To Love is to Live

Accidental Poet

Learning about life

No easy undertaking

It’ll take a lifetime to understand

The choice that your making


If I lived to be a hundred

What have I learned

If not about love

That treasure to be earned


For love can be

A story of sadness

But it can also be

A book of gladness


Taking the good with the bad

Part of life is compromise

The balance of life

There before your eyes


And love is a gift

Be it within your heart

Without it you’re missing out

 On life’s most essential part


Living without love in your life

To yourself a disservice

Give yourself the gift of love

By way of Heavenly sincereness


Heaven’s reward

To live is to give

Cherish the love in your heart

To love is to live
