WOULD YOU KNOW LOVE?
by MICHELLE LYNN MANGIAMELLI

     LOVE...
DOES IT COME IN A PACKAGE, 
DOES THE MAILMAN DELIVER IT TO YOU?
DO YOU LOVE ONE MINUTE, BUT NOT THE NEXT,
OR KNOW WHEN IT'S REALLY TRUE?
IF YOU FIND IT, WOULD YOU KEEP IT,
OR LET IT FADE AWAY?
WOULD YOU KNOW WHEN IT WAS IN TROUBLE, 
AND DO ANYTHING TO MAKE IT OK?
I NEED TO TELL YOU A STORY 
ABOUT "LOVE" AND WHAT I KNOW,
IT'S UNBELIEVABLY A WONDERFUL FEELING 
THAT JUST CONTINUES TO ALWAYS GROW.
     
I DIDN?T BUY IT WITH MONEY, 
OR ORDER IT THROUGH THE MAIL,
I DIDN?T FIND A CURE FOR CANCER, 
OR MAKE THE SICK BE WELL.
I GRABBED IT WHEN I FOUND IT, 
AND HELD ON WITH ALL MY MIGHT.
ONCE YOU HAVE IT, YOU WILL KNOW IT, 
IT'S AS STRONG AS THE SUN IS BRIGHT.
I GET SCARED AND A FEELING OF DESPAIR, 
WHEN OUR LOVE IS THREATENED IN ANY WAY.
A LOVE LIKE OURS MUST BE PROTECTED, 
EACH AND EVERY DAY.
MOST PEOPLE LET LOVE SLIP AWAY,
NOT KNOWING IT PASSED THEM BY,
SO THEY NEVER FEEL THE LOSS OF BEING LOVED,
ONLY A FEELING OF EMPTINESS INSIDE.
I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN LIFE, 
AND HOPE YOU FIND YOUR TRUE LOVE,
WHEN YOU FIND HIM, YOU WILL KNOW IT. 
HE WAS SENT FROM HEAVEN ABOVE.
