If love is fleeting
what is the purpose
what is the meaning
an adventure i suppose

to sail its salty seas
weather its harsh storm
to answer its pleas
and struggle to conform

and only to repair its sails
in battering winds.
through all its ails
never it rescinds.

is it luck to get lost,
or can it be fate?
can a coin be tossed?
is one side hate?

what an endeavor
some will search
to find that treasure
their heart, its perch.

alas to find contentment
it is but a journey
but to hold no resentment
that is the purpose, surely.
