What is love?

What is love?
It's a many splendoured thing,
And makes the world go round.
It changes everything,
And it can build a bridge.
It's what we all need,
And is in the air tonight.
It is the answer,
And it is blind.
It is given a bad name,
And you can jump for it.
It can be tender,
And it can be like oxygene.
It can hurt,
And it can be deep and tender.
We can be addicted to it,
And it can be all around.
It can inspire poets,
And it can tear us apart.
It is the foundation of our families,
And the reason we exist.

    1. Thank you Agent. Glad you enjoyed the poem. I agree about the power of love, a difficult thing to write about and capture.
