Check Here For Love

Updated on March 26, 2014

Love Continues On

It's time to make room for love

Easier said than done

With the world and it's problems on our shoulders

How can we not be stressed ?

Will worrying about what will happen next help or hurt in any way?

You have the answer right before your eyes today

Feeling loved and giving love is so unique

It gives us a place and a purpose

From there we branch out

The more love the more strength

Love cost nothing and the rewards our endless

Let's think about it for a second

You might be sad at this very moment

Thinking I have been looking for love my whole life

I have never found it

The truth is you never seen it

You have been loved every day of your life

If you go into a box of marbles looking for only blue marbles

Hours later find none

Feeling real bad

You have wasted your time looking and searching

All you wanted is one blue marble to make you happy

Thinking I love blue marbles and I have none

You had a wonderful box of marbles

Thousands and thousands of marbles before you

Anyone else would of been happy with all the wonderful marbles that they could play with

A lifetime of fun watching each color sparkle in the light

Rolling them from one direction than the other

How groups of marbles make new colors

Then the endless combination of colors you can make

Years of happiness just playing with marbles

The noise they make when they bounce of each other

Can you see what I am getting at ?

You came to the box of marbles in the beginning to have fun

Thinking only blue marbles can give your fun and walked away disappointed and angry

Thinking how could I have so many marbles and not one the color blue

When in fact you had so much waiting for you

All you had to do is see it

You were convinced that only blue marbles could make you happy ?

What if you had found one blue marble

You could of said I can't believe after all these marbles I have only one blue one

Instead of being happy again

Realizing what a treasure you have before you

Thinking you must of missed one

Then go back through all the marbles again

Leaving the one marble you wanted all along

Every day we have to make choices

These choices make the base for all our other decisions

Have we have made bad choices ?

Think again

Think again and again if we have to

We choose to love

Finding love here or anywhere

Is just a matter of how you see things

Not what you have or don't have

Carry on sharing your love that is so strong

Sharing it with everyone you meet

Love will come rolling back

Just like marbles they take time but when they roll

Boy do they roll

Have someone roll marbles across the floor at you

See how many you can catch

Then it's your turn you get to roll the marbles

It is not as easy as it looks

But so much fun

If you forget and feel lack of love once again

Look into your pocket

Pull out those few marbles I gave you

Roll them around and see

Love is there in the light

All the love you ever wanted and needed

You just have to move them just right

      Poetry is so beautiful, and comparisons make it come alive. Marbles can be beautiful just like love. All the different colors make them what they are. Dream on, thank you for sharing your words with us. Love it. Blessings. Audrey.

      I love your analogy of the 'one blue marble.' This is brilliant my friend. Your comparison of all the different colors of marbles likened to all the different kinds of love is amazing. I'm in awe of your poetry. What a concept! ~ Audrey

      Jodah There are so many different color combinations when you put different marbles together each one creating a new color of beauty. I like to think of love in the same way. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. Have a great day.
