where love is also the return

For all we know, love is not all,

It is not meat or drink,

Nor slumber,

Nor a roof against the rain.


Rose is red,

Blood is red,

Heart is red

A woman loves, and her love heals.


And if I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath, I'd tell you I love you forever, even beyond death

If I thought that your face would be the last I see, I'd take a million pictures and save them just for me

If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I'd hear, I'd listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear

If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I'd feel, I'd embrace you and know that all this has been real

If I thought for just a moment that my heart would beat its last beat, I'd thank the Lord for allowing us to meet❤❤
