Loves Keeps You Spinning

Updated on June 25, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Love can be delightful

and send hearts flying,

like happy, fluttering birds -

straight to the skies.

Love can be contentment,

finding peace in each other’s arms.

A soft shoulder to rest upon,

a warm hug to say everything is alright.

Love can be a warm friendship,

with two souls becoming as one,

with two hearts joining together

and beating in unison.

Love can be an experience,

a fantasy -

to live and to explore.

As two lips meet

and say I love you,

the times spent together –

can really be so sweet.

Love can be a tragedy,

when two souls,

no longer agree,

when harsh words,

tear your world apart

and your heart is crushed.

No matter which way your world spins,

love is to have and to hold.

To be bold,

to say I love you,

to give trust ,

to find the other half -

of the heart which beats within you.

Love can be game,

a roll of the die,

you never know,

how it will be,

but not to love,

is and never will be an option.

So embrace love,

when it is yours to take

and never forget,

that you must love with all your heart and soul,

with deep passion,

so that love will be yours -

for now and forevermore.

      Better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. Beautiful reminder, Rasma.
