Finding love is like beating the odds and winning the lottery.
BEATING THE ODDS
Seven billion people bustling about this planet,
Spread out over seven continents spanning seven seas;
Against much better odds, say, of winning the lottery – twice
Or landing on the moon and returning safely back
With one minute too soon or too late making all the difference,
Yet in this precise moment in space, time and motion,
I have beaten all the odds in this fickle life of chance
By finding you: the sole love of my existence.
