I Love Because I Can


I don't love because of want
I don't love because of man
Some say that loves a stunt
But I love because I can

I can love without a reason
I can love just because
I can love through any season
Any decent person does

Some say that love is blind
But to me they are just fools
I say that love is kind
And one of many tools

It gives us inspiration
Yet provokes the greatest pain
It gives a nice sensation
And is anything but plain

Though love can hurt us so
It's worth the pain and tears
To the moon for love I'd go
If it took a million years

It's better to have loved and lost
Than to have never have loved at all
And for love I'd pay that cost
And climb a mountain tall

One may think that I'm crazy
One may think that I'm insane
But those who don't love are lazy
And are lacking heart and brain

I can love without a reason
I can love just because
I can love through any season
Any decent person does

I don't love because of want
I don't love because of man
Some say that loves a stunt
But I love because I can

    Love this poem, very meaningful and true and being a independent woman, i think all woman should have this kind of mentality, love not because of a man but because we can, very beautiful and inspirational. (Report) Reply

    I can love without a reason...We first fall in love and then find a reason. That too becaue our logical mind commands us. Lovely poem.
