Romance is when we focus
solely on the sweetness in life
It is the chocolate bar
of the soul
Or maybe the chocolate-covered cherry truffle
of our lives.
Love truly glues life together
Lack of it as an infant
can actually lead to physical death
That’s how important
the dessert of life is: love and connection.
It can’t sustain us in a vacuum
We can’t have a dessert
without first having the
“meat and potatoes” of life –
-or dessert becomes the meat and potatoes
and life is unbalanced for us.
But after the main meal
oh how sweet is the dessert of romance!
Why else is it so common
that we make love at night
after the day is done?
It is the crowning glory
of all our accomplishments
or of our persistence to hang in
that we sometimes, are lucky enough to enjoy.
Would you not fight to keep
someone from stealing your piece of cake or pie?
Then HANG ON to the romance
~~ the REAL stuff ~~ in your life.
