.....If Love Were Like Water (Best Love Poems)

If love were like water
I'd build you a fountain,
And if love were like stone
I'd bring you a mountain.
If love were like air
I'd set whirlwinds free,
But as these are not love
I'll just give you me.

A cutting poem on a young poet's wasted life and his defeatist outlook - a shame for those so gifted but so cowardly as to escape through suicide.
My take of this poem is that life is a precious gift given to us by God. To make the decision to end it by suicide is unforgivable and a cowardly act that does not afford us a chance to find a solution to whatever the problem is.
