A million reasons why


a million reasons why

A million reasons why

There are a million reasons why try

One reason that we do or die,

Two hands to wipe a tear struck eye

One heart to heave a heavy sigh.

We have two arms to hold embrace

Two legs to help us win the race,

A host of doors slammed in our face

One or two who set the pace.

There are five senses we can call

One brain to understand it all,

One bottom there to take the fall

One nose to press up to the wall.

So many minutes in one day

So many hours come what may,

So many years to go astray

Too many parts in life’s great play.

There are a million reasons why we try

I’ve listed but a few,

Yet the single greatest one I’ve missed

Is the love between just two.
