Love in This World

As this world keeps on turning,

the fires of love will keep on burning,

lovers who are close and dear –

lovers who wish to be near.


The smoldering fires,

with embers glowing,

send wisps of smoke into the air –

creating smoky heart creations.


Love is ever changing,

it can be true or fickle,

gone like a puff of smoke –

leaving a fire smoldering.


Once the glowing embers,

grow cold,

love has become but a memory,

the heart now a lonely hunter.


Throughout the centuries,

love has left a trail of broken hearts,

emotions twirling –

love, jealousy, envy and hate.


The bliss of true love,

as with love’s first kiss,

is the grandest of all,

but the hardest to find.


As lovers search far and wide,

for that right certain someone,

never really feeling sure –

till someone says eternally yours.


Beware as you walk through love’s forest,

there is magic you know,

but enchantment can fool you

and make you lose your way.


Always listen carefully,

to what lovers say,

look deep into their eyes

and see if it’s love or lies.


Tread carefully and hold fast to your heart,

don’t give it away for free,

make sure that kisses are filled with passion

and that love is truly real.

    You speak truth, Rasma, in this age old desire to find true love. I like your phrases. Finding that one true love is a gift beyond earthly desires. Great message and work.

    Nicely penned of love, and the romance and desire of beginnings. Yet what follows in deep abiding love is far more emotive and long lasting. cheers!
