We cannot force love
Anymore than we can force
The magnolia from the bud
Or the ending of life’s wars
So we cannot force love

We cannot force the waves
To lie placid on the bay
Or draw from winter’s graves
The blooms of yesterday
And we cannot force love

We cannot pull to us
Or obediently take hold
Of a heart simply because
We must do as we are told
For we cannot force love

But love’s mighty force
Is unstoppable
And in its kind discourse
Anything is possible
In the force of love
