The Fool

A person in love can become a fool
To all the emotions that are new
How can we tell a fool they must beware?
Of the things they might say and do.

Accept what is offered a love that is true
Accept it and hold it to your heart
A fool and his emotions a dangerous thing
Don’t let them make two lovers now part.

A Greek god has looks and the presence too
But the emotions he shows would not be like you
Handsome and beauty are just surface things
To the regret of many that bought golden rings

To love and be loved is a precious gift
Don’t look for things that aren’t there
Just love and be loved and honour and trust
To the love of your life just be fair.

    so true, Mandy....i gots me a woman who loves me and i ain't never lettin' her go.......because she would find me...haha...joking. Love and respect is key to healthy relationships. Women desire love by nature. Men desire respect by nature. So, its easy for men to show respect before love and women to show love before respect, but each must give the other to their mate...and it can't be conditional. That's just my take on it, anyway. Enjoyed the poem!
