Too Much Love



>Can we ever possess too much love Can it ever possibly be true That as the years fly relentlessly by And the remaining years are few We try to squeeze out every last ounce Of love till that ultimate day When we're actually bursting at the seams Our emotions are out on display When I was a very much younger man And life felt like a forever thing Never questioned it, gonna live forever Life was a big happy fling Then the realization that as we grow older Love is more important to us The one thing that drives us human beings Love is much more than lust Too much love? It's never ever enough Spread your feelings far and wide Until you take that penultimate breath Don't keep love wrapped up inside © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hie, Jack. We learn a lot from your teachings. You're my mentor. I've said more than enough already! Hah-ha-ha! Love that we perceive now will turn into perfect love as one grows- perfect as it slowly cast away infatuation, jealousy, fear, anger, lack of trust etc. However, to get this far, you gotta live a little bit longer!...JM

    There is TOO!... to much love... Like when Dragon tried to sit on Santa's lap... He was very understanding at the hospital... Or when he tries to hug me too tight... OUCH! Or tries to include me in his games and accidently, on purpose, runs me over... He HATES to lose!... you know...LOL... Dragon and friends give a whole new meaning to love!...LOL... Or when I write for you guys... and you groan... That's love too!

    So true... the more we give, the more we receive! So I'm sending you love in return for all the love you've been sending me ever since joining P-Soup! I will never forget, you were the first to welcome me! Love and hugs, Jack xox
