I Don’t Need A Reason

Sometimes, love, just is.

We can’t explain it or define it.

We don’t know why it happens,

We just have it.

I don’t need a reason to love.

But

He gives them to me every day.

Humor.

Patience.

Acceptance.

Tolerance.

Generosity.

Truth.

Encouragement.

Love doesn’t always give us reason or make sense.

I don’t take for granted

That I love,

And it

Just

Is.

I Don't Need A Reason

I have a need to explore parts of this world I have not yet known, and I can’t help but pause in my new discoveries to appreciate what I need not search for.

He is there.

    A wise woman appreciates and celebrates the treasures she holds in her heart. Thank you for the reminder, Colleen.

  2. Colleen, I read this just after posting a poem of my own. A poem which began to open me up again as I wrote it a few weeks ago. As I read this I could feel my body temperature rise, warmth radiating from my heart out to my limbs. So simple. So guileless. So true.

    Pause and appreciate. Yes.

  4. Wonderful poem, Colleen!

  5. Beautiful Colleen, if every marriage or partnership had that love there would be less divorce and seperation. Well penned.♥♥

  6. You are one lucky woman, Colleen. I don’t understand that old saying not to wear your heart on your sleeve. How can you not when you hold such love and joy? ❤ ❤ ❤
