Dare To Love

written by: Henry Bladon



I ask you if you dare to love
in a place where time is running short
or where hope fades like a soft morning mist.

I ask if you dare to love in twilight moments
when walking alone in lonely streets
or under the shade of a café canopy.

You answer: I shine brighter when I’m happy,
so you tell me.
