Why is Love the Only Way?

Why is love the only way?
     I can fight for you – but I cannot fight you for you.
Why are the cold hard facts the cold hard facts?
    Because, they are bereft of emotions 
    like the numbers on a tombstone.
    The love, The hate, The longing, 
    The missing, The wish, 
    aren’t recorded, but they are no less real.
Love is the only way,  not just because God said, “It is so,” 
   but because it truly is.
   We just tend to get God’s statements confused 
   with rules, when they are actually only 
   a loving conversation about how things are.
