“Love is”

“Love is”

 

Memories abound and my mind forms the words

The ink stains the paper

It flows from my pen

Like the breath of my soul

I write for the lonely

For those who fear tomorrow

For another day of sorrow

I write of love, its warmth and passion

For those who have known it and those who long for it

Words cannot mend the loss of a love

Or describe the finding of love

They only enrich the moment that was

Expressions of love are not just a kiss or embrace

Love is a touch, or a glance that is met

Heed what I say so your heart will not stray

Don’t love out of need or even the deed

A need can be met and a deed we soon forget

To love is to accept, without limits or regret

You cannot love and neglect

Love must be nurtured and renewed to protect

Love is timeless and comes to us all

There is no right time, but there is…….

A time
