1,000- nd. Hubs .......The Color of Love .

Updated on May 18, 2015

I have wondered for awhile what I should write for this milestone !
Here it is !

For the Color of Love

No longer will I mosey about in a mood
of rejection
As of today I will hold every chance meeting up in
the light for an inspection

It seems to me that we've come to a place
of avoiding that which we all need
No longer do we smile or say a word
is it selfishness -is it greed

So go ahead , look me in the eye as I
hold a door or lend a helping hand
at least respond in kind I'm not here to take your life
your home your land

Not just in the city not just at the beach
but everywhere I wander
I see those who are miserable who cannot smile
but who simply slander

What a gift it is to see a simple smile
a touch of a hand a hug to truly lend
What ever happened to the magic of a child
a glow on the face of a friend

From now on I will give nothing to you
that isn't from a sharing of love
Nor will I expect anything less
than that which began .........from above

Oh you don't believe in love .....fine
Be that as it may
That does not however give you the right to deny
It is love that colors a day
