If only it could be pumped by my heart
Through every artery and every vein
To every part of my body that pleaded for it.
If only it could be harnessed
And used to save lives
Lives of those who needed it most
If only its absence could cause illness
To prove it importance.
Without love, life would have no meaning
No reason behind it
Nothing to look forward to
Life without love is like a body without blood
Useless, Hopeless, Dead.
If love replaced blood,
Would people realize it importance?
