Love from the Heart

Updated on March 5, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Like flowers that need,

the sun and rain to grow,

so love needs to be nourished

and smiles to make -

the days so very bright.

Love requires,

so much that many,

think it’s so easy -

to say I love you.

Whether love is or isn’t true,

heart like bass drums beat.

Kisses are always a treat

and holding hands warms the soul.

Just three words,

nothing more than petals on the wind,

if they don’t come from the heart.

When love comes along,

it’s so hard to know right from the start,

if two heart will beat as one,

if upon love warm sunbeams will shine.

Love needs rainbows

and special thoughts,

it cannot grow,

if there are only -

three words to tell it so.

I love you,

can be said by anyone,

but it might not be real -

if it doesn’t come from the heart.

The day you find someone -

Do you find them in your heart?

Do your days begin and end

with your special love?

So bright and warm like the sun

or do they end cold and gray?

Like coals no longer,

with hot embers.

Love needs tender loving care,

warmth and happy smiles -

love has to come from the heart.
