Does Love Reside Where I Cannot See?

Are Daddy’s words the truth or does he lie?

At twenty-six I learned that love must mean

Always give in or lose the fight and die.

Is my belief in love a worthless dream?

The one I married said, “please stay and play.”

I thought he loved me but I was a fool.

It’s all pretense so he could get his way.

I think love can’t be kind; it’s always cruel.

I think love can’t be seen by souls like mine.

I’ve lost again, and don’t know how to win.

I don’t know where to turn or how to find

Love that is not cruel. Where do I begin?

Lord, can you tell me why love hides from me?

Does true love reside where I cannot see?
