If Only...

by J Lau   Jan 24, 2006

If only love is easy to find;
Then we will not long for it.

If only love can be guaranteed;
Then we will not know how to treasure it.

If only love requires no effort;
Then we will not realize it.

If only love lasts for a few hours;
Then we will not commit to it.

If only love comes without obstacles;
Then we will not appreciate it.

If only love survives without arguments;
Then we will not learn from it.

If only love fades with time;
Then we will not pursue it.

If only love has no happy ending;
Then we will not have any reason to love.

If only... we can recognize love.
