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.
