A Love Poem

In this day and age, it's a rare occurrence
To have feelings so deep that it hurts
People are absorbed in their own little world
A show of love, they try to avert

There's no greater feeling in this old world
Than the feeling of happiness love brings
Be they man or woman it makes no difference
It's a feeling that makes our hearts sing

You can actually go through an entire lifetime
And not know this feeling divine
The triumph of joy and true happiness
It can only be described as sublime

It can lift your spirits on the darkest of days
And help you through all of life's storms
A beacon of light in a dark sky of grey
Nothing else creates a feeling so warm

    Hey there to you too. Thanks for the review and the stars. This is so true. I appreciate this verse. I have known that love once in life, and it is something that lasts a life time. I feel the same as you about FS. I check in to see if they have found some actual poets, but I think they all got tired of the C*** that was going on. I appreciate your input. Peace. Linda

    Are you still a member of FS or have you cut the ties? My membership was up in August and I don't think I'll renew. Was a member for three years! It was a bunch of fun at the beginning but it became much too competitive recently. It's time to move on. Hope you have a ball here... met some fantastic people already! Love and big hugs, Jack
