"I Have Often Lived For Love" (by Joe DiMino)

I have often lived for love-
Died of love…
Sighed for lack of love:
Bought and tried love
In different sizes
And flavors,
Fast food and savors-
Love above all-
Love beneath all-
Love all
That existed for me-
I rejoiced love,
Wept love,
Laughed out in same tears-
Love was all my strengths
Love all my fears-
I dared love,
Then took love to task-
I joined love in the sun
To bask-
I looked and looked
And still nowhere found,
Love that was fertile,
Love that was sound-

One day I stopped looking,
And where I was determined to stay-
Love just came my way-

Can't hide from love-
