love needs love

Love needs love in return
Like hunger needs food

Love needs love
Like order needs rules

Love needs love in return
Like sickness needs healing

Love needs love
Like secrets need revieling

Love needs love in return
Like thirst needs water

Love needs love
Like trust needs a promise

Love needs love in return
Like homeless need a home

Love needs love
Like desire needs hope

Love needs love in return
To aid those needing help

Love needs love
When love is by itself

    Great work..There must be a contest on this theme..I have not checked out the contest lately..Enjoyed reading this evening..I was hurt that my Rat Terrier was sick but I knew that he could not stay here any longer..He was in a very bad state..Our son had brought us Princess about two weeks before Rocky died..I loved her and looked after her even though my heart was hurting..Sara
