Love Is a Verb

Updated on July 3, 2013

Love is a four letter word,

often used but seldom heard,

emotions are a like a fun-fare ride,

easy to see hard to hide,

love makes the world go around,

always lost and rarely found,

love brings people together,

maybe for a day, maybe forever,

love has attributes all of it's own,

like passion flowers when seeds are sown,

love is never over-rated,

sometimes misused but never hated,

love can make you laugh or cry,

love watches life grow then slowly die,

love is a symbol of success,

comes with forgiveness and redress,

love like a flower can be sweet,

how romantic when two souls meet,

love a blanket that keeps you warm,

on a chilly night until dawn,

love the seer can despise,

the truth in your heart hidden by lies,

love is the giver that never takes,

unless miss-used the fragile heart breaks,

love like gravity can defy,

on wings of desire flying high,

love can surpass distance at will,

travel afar your memories fill,

love is the feeling that uplifts your eye,

love is a welcome and cheery sigh,

love is anticipation that flutters your tummy,

butterflies wings of gold, love is yummy.

    Now, I'm filled to the brim, with feelings of love and friendship. Love is never old, love never dies, love conquers all things because it is the most excellent thing.

    I love your poetry. In this poem especially like the image: "love a blanket that keeps you warm on a chilly night until dawn."
