Choose Love

Even when
Everything blows up
Love remains
After all
Love is a choice
And, as I once said to my son
As he curiously witnessed
My open hurting heart
“Be sure and choose it every day”
And again
And when you don’t want to
No matter the pain
No matter how painful
When you do
It comes back to you
And again

~Just L (found poem, May 8, 2009)

Author’s Note: I finally wrote this down on May 8, 2009. I said these very words to my son after he returned from Iraq in May of 2005. I have believed this FOREVER, and always will.
