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 peace. 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 is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes.
His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself!
On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic incident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden.
Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company.
All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel.
He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151 An example of these quotes opens his novel--Once I Was A Soldier:--There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
