Is love but a delusion,
Creation of man's mind?
Nay, love is an illusion,
A thought by gods divined.

Illusion is reality,
If born from in a heart,
Becoming one existence,
Once two that were apart.

Love is called a passion's dance,
I know that is not true,
For oft as not, is just a glance,
That says dear I love you.

Love is waking in the night,
and knowing something's wrong,
Sensing that the one you love,
Is not where she belongs.

Going in the other room,
And walking to her chair,
Reaching out without a word,
And touching on her hair.

Love is changing diapers,
Mending skinned up knees,
Teaching children manners,
To ask for pretty please.

Love is when you aren't around,
Keeping you inside,
Feeling sorrow and your pain,
The day your father died.

Is love but an illusion,
Existing in my mind?
You are my reality,
A love that gods divined.
