What is Love


For what is love if full of care
is it to hurt someone you share
a new emotion a new treat
how to handle a busy street?

To take on board a lover’s dream  
ancient recipe is the theme
for what is love if full of care
with all these wounded scars to bear?

To come together in tandem
many faces picked at random
edited media pressed flair
for what is love if full of care?

If all I did was make you dare
for what is love if full of care
to wish for the system I do
a marriage life and divorce slew?

    Aint love grand, it sure can tickle. As you say, our faces pickle. We savor each drop, as they trickle. A penny for our thoughts become a nickel. When love is true it will not be fickle.

    A thought provoker here Harry...I suppose we'll always get it wrong.. It does seem some centuries got it more wrong than others though; I suppose the will to get it better, is a start..!

    Good morning Harry; I like your poem. I can feel some pain there. They say that things happen for a reason. I always say - It is better to have a good Divorce Than a bad Marriage. Think about it. Smile Lucilla

    For what is love if not a burning heart Steeped in passion from the very start For what is love if it doesn't last Except a sailing ship and mast For what do you say that I am Love, it is the great I am. xxx You inspire me tonight Harry, if I start on the subject of love, I might be up all night fuddling thoughts of it of what it is or not, xxx
