Creating A Generation Of Love

Updated on June 4, 2016

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than That

Sure we can work hard and long hours

We can even squeeze in two jobs

Having all the fancy things

Going on trips to all parts of the world

It is fun and exciting

Eating at all different restuarants

Going to sports events or whatever your hobbies are

For me life is so much more

It's not about all the money in the bank

We all know we can't live without it

By the end of the day

Money won't comfort me by snuggling in close

Neither will two jobs rub my back when I get an itch

Work provides for the necessities we need in life

Add in a few extras

You will find too many toys

Only makes you want more

With more things comes more responsibility

Less time to do the things that really matter

I am talking about being together

Spending time listening

Anyone can and will talk your ear off

How about the lost art of hugging and holding hands

The rest follows the heart

No guarantees

You put yourself out there

Nobody can keep faking it

Only the people who enjoy the things you like

Will stick around

The others will be off in their own little world

Finding the love they want and need

For me less is more

I want to enjoy the time I have

Loving and being loved

It comes with a price

A really high price tag

That many people will run away

Those people who hang in there

Will have found

The things I am talking about are priceless

Being there when someone needs you

Having the freedom to do many of the things your heart desires

I think there is nothing more special

Than two people being alone together

Then when you enlarge that picture

You can see a whole family of love

So you can look and search the world for joy

Then again you can enjoy the love you have always had

With your special someone

All the other things in life are extras

Like props on a t.v. set

They make the scene better

They never replace the cast

Living a happy and emotional life

Brings out the best and finds a way to leave the bad behind

Like an old set of luggage that has been beat up and been around the block

We had a lot of good times

Now I am moving on

Putting it down for the last time

Maybe someone else needs it

May it serve their needs

I am off for a walk in the rain

That's where I want to be

Honey I am ready when you are

I got the door

It's only water

So what if we get wet

It will be so much better

When we can dry off together

      What wonderful sentiments, Dream On. Love makes the world go around and it is more important than being wealthy. I like how you ended too...going for a walk in the rain and then drying off together. Great job.
