    For the love of...love
    I realize there's more than just a few souls
    suitable to be a soul mate
    When they finally meet and realize each other,
    yes...it is worth the wait

    Gotta love romance, each and every drop
    Sonnets, picnics, hand in hand strolls thru the park
    Strawberries and cream, and a single burgundy rose
    Cuddling under a blanket on a big old couch after dark

    For the love of love, I know
    You have to give love a fighting chance
    Take it apart, dissect it, resurrect it sometimes, sometimes not
    But give it more than a passing glance

    When someone gives their entire *** to kiss, instead
    of offering their whole heart, such can lead to a heart breaking cry
    We all make mistakes, salvage what remains and keep it moving, sure
    Though I sometimes reflect and wonder, why?

    For the love of love I see
    Someone who not only loves, but really likes me
    It's not what's promised that matters, but actual deeds
    One of the greatest joys lies in just being together
    All part of the nurturing that love needs
    Water your garden and your flowers shall thrive
    ignore it and grow a field full of weeds

    Yes,I do ponder these things
    For the love of ...love

    yes ponder we must do

    if we are genuine in our "approach"
    and it appears you do love the fact of "love"

    as well as I

    peace

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!




    watzinaname,

    As always, you steal me once again with this most profound article on love. So, as I apply what you have written, it points to what I have underscored, and connects sharply, leaving the indelible stain of truth……….and I love you watziname!

    Hi Watz...

    The last four lines sealed it for me. Most know what is needed to make ANY relationship work, but for whatever reason people fall short and hearts suffer the damage.


    I like how you penned ponder!

    I enjoyed this greatly, especially when you said " Someone who not only loves me, but really likes me"

    that was very creative, and really made me think.

    I want that too.

    Nice work, Watz!

    Yes it is deep Rich, but I think it's possible, thank you.
    No it doesn't guarantee that love will love you back jusdatnice, but when someone comes along, and I think he will, that reflects those qualities, I will recognize them. Thank you kindly.
    Yes we have to be genuine in our approach, and know what we want. Thank you much So'ja.
    So happy that my words leave the stain of truth for you Clyde Coger. How sweet, thanks a million brother.
    People sure do fall thru, leading to much heartache. I truly appreciate your words sis coco, thank you much.
    Your response felt so genuine and kind brother baller, and I hope a kind soul will walk thru that door. Thank you so much.
    Thank you for feeling this Findloveinmeback, may the love you want indeed find you.
    We want love that loves whats real, not just the image. Thank you so much sweetapplepie.
