The power of love

Written on the day My Granddaughter , the beautiful Tahlia Rose, was born

The power of love.

I hold you close to me my Princess 
And it damned near drives me crazy.
As love it grips this tired old heart
And sends my mind all hazy.
As it plays a love song with my heartstrings
About the twelfth of never.
Oh boy my heart is finding out
That I’ll love you forever.

No words could ever do it justice
It's huge just like a mountain
The love it flows continuous
Just like a garden fountain.
As I look at you my pink princess
The feeling be so grand
As love leaps from you oh my Rose
My heart just understands.

I think that when my life doth fade
And I join again the source
Your sweetness it will travel with me
It be a mighty force.
For the power of life did send you, child
With love my heart to touch
And I would thank that power too
For giving me so much.

2002.

    Thank you so much cuz, I think even if nobody else read my stuff, I would write just for you. You were the one who inspired me to send my poems off, in the first place. For this I thank you so very much....I really do appreciate you Suzi.....Peterxxxx
