Love is the Answer

Hold me close she whispered
Feel the brush of breath on your ear
The flush of the words
Calling to the heart
Beating with every movement
Of the tongue
Alive and tumbling like water
Over the falls and into the river
Calm would come by the bend
Rapids churning knowing
Where this watery foam
Would ebb into ripples
Of the day settling in the flow
Knowing this one truth
Love is the answer to every question
Left hanging in the air
In a cloud of frosty breath
On a cold October morning
