    Can your love last longer than an exhale
    Longer than an whisper of thoughts
    Longer than a slow romantic dance
    Longer than a quiet moonlit walk
    Longer than the first kiss?

    Can your love be stronger than
    The moment you feel betrayed
    The second doubt crosses your mind
    The chance meeting with another
    The solitary hesitation in anger?

    Can your love survive through
    The torrid terrains of “possibly”
    The wilderness journey of “maybe”
    The wind swept paths of “tomorrow”
    The ever-changing landscape of “Forever”?

    Can your love be just an emotion
    Or is it a choice, a decision to love
    When like doesn’t always last
    When perfect doesn’t always fit
    When friends always complicate
    When forgiveness always works?

    Can your “LOVE” last longer than love?

    Thoughts to ponder…

    dnommo...there you go making a brutha THINK the way you always do. FOOD FOR THOUGHT is always welcomed. THANKS for bringing it.

    can your love last longer
    than the moment you saw another
    sistah or brutha
    lean close to your lover
    and imagination took you down another
    wrong path?

    can your love last longer
    than I DO
    when you realize
    it's not all about YOU

    can your love last longer
    than tomorrow...next week...or next year
    can you gather all your fears
    and pack them away
    ...that you may continue to love
    today...and another day.

    sorry, d.
    you know how i do.
