    :heart: Dear Heart let me share what I know. The journey you take the way I must go.

    Let me tell you why I like being in love.

    You call us foolish.

    You say it's not real.
    Let me explain how it makes you feel.
    For a period you don't understand
    what is going on.

    What's up.

    You can only experience this when your in love.
    You lose your footing and such.

    You smile more.

    You laugh more.

    Everything good to the touch.
    Your food taste fantastic.
    The air is flower fragrant.

    The sky so blue.
    Even on a cloudy day.
    The birds sing.
    The bees don't sting.
    The season isn't important.
    Cause your heart is singing spring.

    It's growing hot, and large in your chest.
    You wonder if it will burst.
    Love melts away all stress.

    It's a strange feeling coming over you now.

    But funny it doesn't hurt.

    Your shoulders are broad.
    Your back has new spine.
    Head back.
    Eyes open.
    Everything is just fine.

    You take the time in the mirror and stuff.
    Fussing over things that don't mean that much.

    A guy will take his time when he shaves.
    Making sure theres no stubble.
    Left on his face.
    Then he looks around and splash on the spice.
    He really doesn't care who knows of this strife.
    It's a beautiful thing that takes him to flight.
    What a new beginning.
    Sun up, through the night.

    A lady will buy and dress up and fuss.
    She does things in duplicate.

    She must.

    Because her flower and petals of heart.
    Are open.
    It's growing.
    It's ripping apart.
    Her back is straight.
    Her head up high.

    Ballerina stance.

    Her grace is an honor.
    Walking with a different move.
    Smother him wonderful loving flood.

    What a spectrum of changes.
    I approve.
    Of all the things love makes you do.

    So why such a drop when
    it's over I ask.

    It makes those who experience it know it won't last.

    It's scary
    like a ride at the fair.

    Taking you up,
    high in the air.

    Then dropping down
    into dark tunnels thru.
    You never know how you'll
    feel and your blue.

    Why would you want
    to go thru the pain.

    Well look the benefits out weigh the pain.

    A lady splashes perfumes
    from paris and rome.
    A man changes character.
    He's more noble and strong.

    Aren't these things worth

    the risk

    and the danger.

    Of going thru

    LOVE

    again.

    Needing it forever. :love:

    Continued...

    You have characteristics that attract affection.
    It takes you by the hand.
    It leads you into unchartered water.
    Deep in your mind.
    Your unsure.
    Of the beginning or turns.
    The lessons to be learned.
    About yourself.
    Or the one your sharing this with.
    As you take this drink.
    You sometimes think.

    How could the power of another take over?

    Taking you under an influence a new.
    Emotional roller coaster ride of need.
    It's an intense affection, attraction and tie.
    A carnival high.
    Based largely on sexual desire.

    Oh just ride with it.
    Losing control.
    It's bigger than life.
    Without thinking or missing a beat.
    Love has you by the hand.
    It feels good.
    All this happens lickety split.
    You feel the warmth that love brings.
    The first kiss parts the sky.
    You close your eyes and fall into the deep.
    In your face.
    In your heart.
    In your feet.
    Butterflies flutter.
    Sometimes in your stomach.
    You stammer your words and tremble a bit.
    Everything they say.
    Has your attention.
    Even when words aren't expressed.
    Check your posture.
    Check your breath.
    Giving everything feel they expect.
    You promise each other it will never end.
    You've seen the wreaks.
    Broken hearts lost love bring.
    Commit to always be there.
    Not to cheat.
    Not to do those things.
    Every women and man.
    Like wind you can't see it.
    You just feel it.

    Love can be grand. :love:
