When Love is Found

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


True love is found when desire subsides,

when the caring and kindness of love resides,

The warmth of a heart imbued with intent,

does nurture a life no effort spent.


It is the little things that give love hope,

a tea in bed, an errand to cope.

A sensitive hand in times of contention,

a supporting shoulder when life needs attention.


It is never the physical forms of love,

that determine longevity and rise above.

It is the tenderness of heart, the sacrifice of giving,

that restores the joy and pleasures of living.


Beauty is found in your true loves eyes,

when the trivial matters of life subside.

When truth and friendship and values are found,

beauty of heart and joy abounds.


It is my hope that true love ensues,

beyond the desires of the flesh renewed.

That all of humankind reveals,

the path of harmony and love concealed.

Very sweet Tony. I personally would not throw the physical stuff out with bath water. I think you can have your sex and teacakes too.
