Love is Real

love is in the everyday. it is in bags of bananas and strawberries on gloomy day. it is in the voice i’ve gotten familiar with talking about senselessness and philosophies of life. it is in the swift moment of brushing each other’s hands. and it is in the uncertainty of life secured only in God’s palm.

when i experienced it, even with the uncertainty and instability, it is okay for love will make a way.

love is real by jason mraz.

love is real it is not just in novels or the movies
it is fact and it is standing here right in front of you
so if you just open your eyes, oh what a sweet discovery
there is hope, and there is joy and there is acceptance

so now let all the light that collects on your plants keep you warm, make you smile
and I will be there with this pen in my hand to record all the while
you’ll be laughing so loud that the house will shake with sound
and everything will be as new as the day it was found

oh, love is real it is not just in long-distance commercials
or something that you thought you felt back in high school
so I will turn black and white become that horoscope you’re reading
it predicts that something good is on its way

and I’ll send you all the world green and blue in a box through the mail
you can open it up, hold it right in your hand and be glad that it’s there
and be glad that you’re there

now you can feel all the knots in your stomach they start to untie
and suddenly it’s not so hard to say you’re alright

oh, love is real it is not just in poetry and stories
it is truth and it will follow you everywhere you go from now on
so if you just cast all off your doubts then your lips would answer for you
oh, my darling when you smile it is like a song 
i can hear it now
and I can hear it now…
