Love is a Thing I Need

I heard a prayer today

By Father Pedro Arrupe

About love

Part of it read:

“Fall in Love, stay in love,

and it will decide everything.”

When I was walking home from church,

I started thinking.

Love is what makes life worth living.

Love for my family, my friends,

For school, for theatre, for service.

Love for books and Netflix original series,

For sunny days and warm blankets.

I wake up each day and think

About all the things, people, and ideas that I love

That I get to see each and every day.

And I smile

Because they are all I need.
