No Reason

Reason…
Everyone seems to wonder what the reason for love is…
They wish to wonder on the possibilities…
They wish to understand the meaning…
So, they ask me…

What do I tell them?
What is the reason for love?
The truth is…
There is no reason…

Love does not need a reason…
Love does not need a rhyme…
Love does not need anything…
Love does not want anything…
But Love…

Most people don’t understand the reasoning behind love…
And some people don’t even care…
But I do…
I care, about love… about you…

People wonder the reason behind my love for you…
Why do I love you eyes?
Why do I love your smile?
Why do I love your voice?
Why do I love everything about you?

But what they do not understand is…
I do not need a reason to love you…
Because reason is of this world,
My love for you goes beyond mortality…
My love…
Is eternity…
