The Natural Order of Things

…is the natural order of things. The very reason for men and women’s existence is to love and be loved. Ultimately there is nothing else worth having.

Taken from “Resignation” by Nikki Giovanni
I love you
because the Earth turns around the sun,
because the North wind blows north
because the Pope is Catholic,
and most Rabbis Jewish,
because winters flow into springs,
and the air clears after a storm,
because only my love for you,
despite the charms or gravity
keeps me from falling off this Earth
into another dimension.
I love you
because it is the natural order of things…
