On life



Love rushes in,
like a breath of fresh air.
Intoxicating, overwhelming,
a feeling without compare.

To reach for the stars,
you must first reach the moon.
But beware life's nature to rush,
lest you lose such feelings far too soon.

The heart will seek out,
what the soul truly craves.
Love, support, and companionship
to last for the rest of your days.

So find the one you love,
grab on, and hold tight.
Life is too short,
a whimper, a cry,
the dusk setting before the inevitable,
cold, everlasting night.
