All I Need is Love

All I need is Love

Love is all I need

Said some man

Long ago

I think he’s right

And wrong

 

All I need is Love

Not Eros

I’m not romantic

Or aesthetic

I don’t need Eros

 

All I need is Love

Not Ludus

I am not easily swayed

This way and that

By love that means nothing

I don’t need Ludus

 

All I need is Love

Not Pragma

I’m logical

But I don’t care if

You can’t fit into my plans

I don’t need Pragma

 

All I need is Love

Not Mania

My love may seem crazy to some

But not to me

I don’t need Mania

 

All I need is Love

Not Storge

You’re my best friend

But you’re more than that

I need more than Storge

 

All I need is Love

Agape but with your name

I need you

With your Love and compassionate

Selfless and beautiful

All I need is You
