MAYBE

 

It’s about the heart, and how love is the answer
to most of our problems, even though love
has the shortest lifespan of all the emotions,
or so it seems, and though this applies on a case by case basis
I do know that in my tumultuous life I’ve probably felt more love
for animals that were with me or that I met in passing
than I ever felt for humans, with the exception of my wife
who consistently brings out the love in me,
and for that reason– at least a good part of the reason–
I think there’s some meaning to human life–
maybe enough to get me through this one.
