The Why of Love

Sometimes love comes unexpected
To the one that it selected
Taking unaware a heart that's thirsting to be loved

Thriving on the spoken word
Clinging to the songs it's heard
The heart's entranced to follow in the wondrous path of love

Drawn by his endearing voice
Echoing the spirit's choice
Waking every morning to the calling of his love

Taken by his gentle charms
Yielding to his waiting arms
Holding on to all the splendid songs forever more

How did life turn ever sweet
Why now is my soul complete
Is this a reward for all the emptiness before

Where do all the answers lie
Why does love so mystify
Will my lips stay silent and not ask the why of love

It is written in the wind
It is known to only Him
It was etched in time by one who knows the why of love

Elizabeth Santos

To question the gift of love is useless.  Perhaps, it is a matter of having an open heart where love can enter, when before you closed it out. Lovely poem!

I love the way this flows. Its excellent and charming.

     It is written in the wind
     It is known to only Him
     It was etched in time by one who knows the why of love

This stanza says it all!
