The Little Mechanic

Poetry By: bobthebuilder

We know the importance of regular maintenance for our cars, how about for our love?

The Little Mechanic

Love is the engine that powers our lives.

It runs on the very blood that courses through us,

but can just as quickly bleed us dry.

We inhale and exhale its fumes,

most fragrant,

knowing they can suffocate us in an instant.

The thrum and throb paces our hearts,

which will cease to beat,

if fate misfires.

So we must tinker, and fuss,

to keep the engine of our lives

running smoothly, strong.

Here's to the little mechanic in all of us.

Listen to him when he speaks.

After all, he just wants to help keep

your love running strong.
