Philosophy of Love

By Katherine Kaufman


What is love? my sister asked

expecting an answer that was not vast

Love? I asked with a questioning tone

Yes, she said, Is it unknown?

It’s not that simple, don't you know?

Loves like spring, needs time to grow

It cant be described with any word

for it’s a feeling, that cant be heard

Don't you understand this complex thing?

Tied together by a silly ring?

I know for now this wont make sense

because this topic is just too dense

One day though you’ll understand

That love is terrible and awfully grand.
