Best John Loving Iii Poems

the greatest gift

the greatest gift i ever recieved
was for no one else just for me
a music box from an old thrift store
and a poem that made my heart soar
two of the things that i loved most
that let me know the she was surely taking notes
it was christmas two years ago
and those were the presents that let love show
she had found a way to let me know
that her love was something special
and i should help it grow
i smiled and looked at her and gave her a hug
but not the kind you give a girl 
when you know that your in love
that would come later

    Isn't it wonderful to receive John what our heart really desires and I hope that later the lady did receive the hug that told her you were in love! X Lizzie
