The Greatest Love Story

The greatest love story ever told
Is right here in my heart
It isn't fancy with fancy words
It's sweet like the song of a lark

No need for any material things
To prove the depth my love
Just holding your body close to mine
A love that fits like a glove

Many words have since been written
About how true love endures
Words expressing one's inner feelings 
Feelings so intense and pure

Life on earth is a fleeting thing
We're here next moment we're gone
Love until your very last breath
Too soon you'll be passing the baton

My heart sings with the joys of love
Tender words flow out like a river
The greatest love story ever told
Makes my soul and body quiver

    Your wife is a very lucky person! This time I'll behave when you get serious... cause I know the fun will later come back. Your friend

    Its good to love, Jack, and to be able to express that love; in its purest form, love is wonderful. Nice words. Continue to love.

    Many a true word spoken here, Jack. I saved it to my favorite poems, lest I forget. "Love that fits like a glove": I am fortunate to know such a love (second time round, lucky). Blessings, Suzette
