~ God-Given Need ~   
The human body is such an amazing machine.
It arrives all assembled with numerous parts.
And without batteries it works like a charm,
 For in their place God has given us hearts.
But, people are more than efficient machines.
For deep within our souls,  hidden from view,
Are some things that we can not easily explain,
Called emotions, all so essential to me and you.


Some of these "feelings" are physical in nature,
But, the one most essential to each and everyone
Is a simple four letter word known to all as "love"
With us from birth, it stays until our time here is done.
A baby feels love rocked to sleep in a mothers arms.
A teenager feels love from hearing a parents cheer.
It's the love that makes children feel safe and secure.
It teaches them the meaning of love and that is clear.

And it sets a pattern that continues all of  our life.
To be desired and loved is something we all need.
To love and be loved in return is "heavenly bliss"
With no exceptions it's what everyone wants, indeed.
Makes no difference whether you are young or old,
It matters not if you're short or tall, whether rich or poor,
This God-given need is within each and everyone of us.
To give love and receive love, we ask for nothing more.
