A Quest.

 

911UP+FYO+L._SL1500_

My body grows weak as my mind does tire

Searching for the phrases that will never expire

Explaining love and what it means

For those who live within its dreams.

A lifetime spent in wasteful youth,

Never able to tell lies from truth

Was not a way of finding that piece,

How can I now find the release?

The words escape my grasp sometimes

Failing me and emptying my lines,

But never will I cease my quest

Until I’m finally laid to rest.

 

I’ll write them here as they come to me.

I’ll leave it to you, to see if you agree.

 

Love sees faults but pushes them aside

Never belittling and never them to deride.

Love never shows contempt for the things you may do.

It stays there forever, simply loving you.

Love is to accept that which cannot be changed.

Caring about each aspect without being constrained.

Loves never asks for a thing beyond your reach.

Knowing that you’d give, before being beseeched.

Love offers peace but can cause a war.

It can soothe a wound but can open a sore.

Love is an emotion that encompasses so very much,

Yet can be expressed by a simple, solitary touch.

Love can be a tie. It can be a release.

It can mean so much beyond belief.

To summarise as I think I must.

You either believe in love, or you have no trust.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
