Small Nuances



Used to think love was just for the young Nay nay love never really ends It's a built in response to the opposite sex To great heights you still can ascend We must be aware how easy love dies Needs nurturing every single day It can be as simple as a touch of the hand Or the tender soft words that you say Sometimes a caress of a loved one's hair A cuddle when someone is sad It needn't always be passionate love play Small nuances and love can be had Small things can actually go unnoticed But if it's an enduring attraction They mean more than all the time worn phrases Uttered in the heat of passion © Jack Ellison 2013

    Beautifully done Jack! It's great to see love doesn't die with age. I like the idea of little things meaning more in the end than time worn phrases - it's a nice caution to keep in mind. Very well written.

    Do you know how overjoyed I am to see you back on track!!!!!! Don't know why, but I've been inspired to write about love for a couple of months now! Could it be the warm cozy "sitting by the fireplace" kind of weather? OR perhaps it's something else??? Love ya... hugs xoxoxox

    I fussed at Mike today... And he pulled out a postcard I had sent him in 1971 when I graduated from High School... Saying we were destined to be together... He's kept it for 42 years... Now that's romantic! ... Dragon was impressed... me too.

    Another gem from you, Kenny. I must say...I think that you are the best at love poems....or maybe I just relate to them the most! I love the humor, but there is nothing like love...Great write! Catchy title...You ROCK!
