What happened to love, solid foundational loveThe kind that sweeps you off your feetVisit’s you with a smile that makes your heart skip a beatTakes you by surprise and takes your breath awayKeeps thoughts of everyone else completely at bayWhat happened to love, unconditional crazy loveI’ve glimpsed it in unexpected places here and thereBut it’s always fleeting, like a butterfly in the airIt feels a bit like chasing the impossible dreamJust stories built on daydreams so it would seemWhat happened to love, mythical true loveLike Big Foot or the Loch Ness a story built on truthPure imagination for folly’s and fools of youthIs it too farfetched to believe in its feasibilityOr is it all a game of cleverly disguised futilityWhat happened to love, enduring simple loveThe kind that sits in wrinkled skin and silvered hairThe kind that distinguishes between wrong and fairThe kind that contently sits in an old porch swingHappy for all the things that sharing a life did bringWhat happened to love, our surviving loveThe love we started out sharing just you and meThe love we vowed and promised would always beI hope with all sincerity that you begin to seeThat true love doesn’t come easy and it’s never free
Loving someone even when it hurts. Loving someone through the mine field. We take chances that our love isn’t the one that ends badly and that our life won’t end up being one big regret. In a moment of kindness we sacrifice ourselves for the hope that we weren’t wrong, that the love we maintain through the crazy insane times will be worth it.
