Poetry of love and parting
Love of Children for Their Playmates
Love for a season
So many lifetimes we live, all meshing into the present one. We learn to love in various situations as we pass through seasons of life.
When we are very young, it is considered a "schoolgirl or boy crush". Those around us tease and joke about our latest "puppy love". To us it is so very sweet and real, and then the time comes to skip on out into the sunset, awaiting the next lesson to be learned, just over the hill.
As adults, we are always searching for the perfect love. We are sure our soul mate is just around the next corner--and so we search, from one love to another.

Wings to Soar, Tender Feelings
Poem of love
Suddenly the light came back into my world.
My heart became warm, overflowing with
tender feelings to share.
It seems my spirit suddenly has wings to soar to
someplace made especially for me
and one who chooses to share
a gentle, loving, space in time,
where outside hurts and sadness can not intrude.
Photos tell the story
Come walk with me ..and we will smother each other
with affection, kindness, and caring
as neither of us have experienced before.
and should the time come for parting,
know that you have brought something special
into my life and never look back with tears.
