The Grandest Feeling of All

Paris is the City of Love
Paris is the City of Love

Warm like the sunshine

Love makes hearts glad

There isn’t a moment that goes by

When you can’t say, love is grand


Without love

The world is cold

Like in the wintertime

When there is no one to hold


Like islands

Drifting on the sea

Searching for a friendly shore

That will bring happiness and so much more


Feelings of love

Are like sailing ships

Blown by the winds

To and fro


Warm as the summer sun

As the heart beats ever faster

Anywhere at anytime

We embrace them


Feelings of emotion

Love brings them

Flying on the wings

Of doves high in the sky


Love brings memories

Of lazy days

With just you and me

And the world so far away


No matter where we are

As long as together we’ll be

There is nothing that’s more special

Than the love that we share


Take my love

And hold on tight

We’ll be alright

As long as the feelings are true


Love lasts through all the seasons

Come rain or shine

In the good times and the bad

Never will there be a time it won’t make you glad


Like rainbows after the rain

Like the wind blowing the clouds away

Like a gray day that’s suddenly sunny

Love can make you feel funny


Shipwrecked upon a foreign shore

Love boats gone astray

Trying hard to find

A way back to this heart of mine


Love is never simple

And there are no special rules

It’s a game of give and take

Never knowing if it’s real or fake


Just give love a chance

Because without it the world

Can be so harsh and cold

Be bold and embrace it


Anywhere and anytime

Love is a wonderful part of life

As two hearts and souls

Are forever entwined


Love is a song

Love is a dance

Love is a feeling

And it will send you reeling

Sometimes there are just no words to describe a special love -- but, you did pretty well at that, Gypsy. Love is the strongest force in the world.

Hi Gypsy Rose Lee.

Expressive. Your compliments to love always contribute pleasant surprises...

Love is…Is found in many episodes of life. " Love" happening in a course of a series of events… Love is longing after - till our soul find rest in the heart of the Creator.

Voted interesting.

Have a blessed week.
