About Love

Love is a gift that should never be wasted. Especially to be appreciated is the romantic love two persons may share. Being in love is a completely unique feeling. It can only be understood through experience. It is inspiring and sweet. It springs from the deepest part of one's being. Love is a powerful force that cannot be dissuaded. Love gives us the strength we need to carry on despite the direst of circumstances or the most difficult of problems. Love can even give someone the will to continue living. That is why we should take care to guard the love we have been blessed with, never letting it fade or die.


Poem of the Week
By Zachary Gagnebin

I wrote this poem to my girlfriend who has the tendency to over analyze. She follows her logic before her heart, where as I am the opposite. And it's not that I want her to change. I just think sometimes the heart should come first. The nice thing about being opposite is that we compliment each others qualities. And we can learn from each other and our unique understanding of things. All I know is that I've found someone very special.

The wheels in your mind spin at blinding speeds
The gears they burn hot as assumption you feed

You calculate an process at a dangerous rate
You look right past what could have been fate

It's hard to change ways you've all but pre-set
Head long on a fast track to pain and regret

So do one favor for yourself if you can
Slow down your logic an take a look at this man

Don't judge this books cover or try to contest
Because I follow this heart that beats in my chest

Cast logic aside and for once just confide
And release all the feeling's you've all but denied

And if storm's cloud your thoughts an logic's the same
Take hold of my hand's and will dance in the rain

Don't want you to change or forget what is you
But do me this favor to your heart be true

Poem of the Week
By Debra Dotter Blakley

Out of this heart of love and hope there flows
wave upon spreading wave of lighted prayer
for a wealth of blessings, surrounding and supporting;
solid pathways through the mountains that
purple the horizon, and draw our eyes upward,
lights for the twists and turns that lie ahead of you
whom I love and hold against my beating heart,
you for whom my spirit aches and sings.

This is my responsibility and my honor,
to create out of the depths of my love for you
a glowing canopy of protection, woven from the strands
of all I have learned of Love and Spirit,
joy, hope and loss, courage and compassion, patience and peace,
that you may have solid ground upon which to walk
and a clear vision to sustain you on the difficult path
that is life lived upon this good earth.

Hush now little light, all will be well,
be brave, we will all walk together for awhile.
I hold you now in my arms and forever in my heart,
tender little man child, lovely baby lady,
you drowse under your blankets as whispers of the future
drawing comfort from the beating of my heart
as with quiet song I lull you toward slumber.

The poem is from Collected Love Poems, published by Harper Perennial

These boys have never really grown into men,
despite their disguises, despite their adult ways,
their sophistication, the camouflage of their kindly smiles.
They are still up to their old tricks,
still at the wing-plucking stage. Only now
their prey answers to women's names.
And the girls, likewise, despite their disguises,
despite their adult ways, their camouflage of need,
still twist love till its failure seems not of their making;
something grotesque migrates hourly
between our different needs,
and is in us all like a poison.
How strange I've not understood so clearly before
how liars and misers, the cruel and the arrogant
lie down and make love like all others,
how nothing is ever as expected, nothing is ever as stated.
Behind doors and windows nothing is ever as wanted.
The good have no monopoly on love.
All drink from it. All wear its absence like a shroud.

Poem of the Week
By Jo-Anne

I canít wait to hold you again

I canít wait to hold you again,
To show you my love and talk again.
To see your face filled with grace,
To here your voice clouding all the noise.

The time is so near and yet so far,
I hate the days when we are apart.
You are my beautiful wife,
And I want more than just one life.

Thank you for sharing everyday with me,
For holding me at night and waking next to me.
For walking beside the journey we are on,
For sharing the blanket and blistering sun.

You are every thing I prayed for,
What am I saying, you are so much more.
The Lord really thought off and blessed me,
The day you said yes and come what may.

I love you my wife with more than I can say,
Iíll love you for ever and a day.
You are the most beautiful person I have ever met,
You are my star, my light and I never want to be apart.

Poem of the Week
By David Yearwood

About the moment we will merge as one body and soul.

The moment is here, we've been waiting for,
Planning and hoping for that special day.
Thoughts go deeper, our emotions get stronger,
Nights are shorter, days are longer.

The time is here, to get wrapped in each other,
we can't wait to get started, our love as we wanted.
The packing, the talking, the excitement is building.
we're ready for love, with passion it's coming.

This time will be different, much better than ever,
Our love must be blended, We're starting out slow.
Each moment in time, will be written in stone,
my darling I care, I want you to know, I love you so!

Our minds are made up, for better we'll be,
Our love is for ever, our hearts are together.
we will merge as one, body and soul,
This day was long coming, it's time to begin!

Poem of the Week
By Howard Bright

This poem reflects on what love truly should mean when you say it to another.

Love is what makes a man
work for the common good.
Love will listen to a lonely heart
that cries to be understood.

Love always brings comfort
when sorrow binds a friend.
Love is the inspiring action
that will a quarrel mend.

Love bears attack from foes
without revengeful mind.
Love shows humanly compassion
and always being kind.

Love is forgiving and forgetting
to allow another chance.
Love is alive on earthís terrain
and the seaís and skyís expanse.

Love remains the greatest power
and always it will be.
Love is what I will give to you
forever and through eternity.

By Devin Murphy

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
Iím on the right track
To being close to you

In my heart is where
You will be found living
Giving me the will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
Iím on the right track to
Bringing people close to you

In place of worship is
Where you will be found
Living, giving people will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
Iím on the right track

By David Yearwood

Sometimes, the way you feel, the feelings you have are so strong, you can't help but telling the world!

You look into my eyes, you've touch my soul.
sweet smiles you bring, across my face.
Deep in my heart, I'm lonely for you,
I've found new hope, we'll never part.

Iím giving my heart, donít break in two,
I feel you much, so sweet with me
When I talk to you, your love makes me cry,
I've never felt this way, with you, I've tried.

Sweet feelings for you come every day,
they make me smile, day by day.
I hate being away, but life will be,
When I'm close to you, I'm hot all over.

I can't help, but want you, to cool my fire.
I canít say many words, for you to see,
My feelings for you are true, I know.
I hope you understand, what I'm trying to say!

I wrote this because I was thinking about my boyfriend. This poem reminds me so much of him because he's so sweet, and he always knows how to make me smile.

Love what does it mean
Is it the feeling you get from being kissed
Is it the small things you miss
Is it the laughter two people share
Or is it the care of a lovers embrace

Love what does it mean
Is it the first day of spring
Does it make you come alive

Or is it cold like the first snow fall
Does it make you cry
Or is it the hardships you take along the way

Love what does it mean
Is it sweet like chocolate
Does it melt in your mouth

Or is it sour like a lemon
Does it make you clinch in disgust
Or is it the sweet taste of victory once it's done
Love what does it mean

By Jill Chan

To be free of pain.
Is that what we all want?
Before anything else,
to be free?
And then suddenly,
we love like love
is a state of absence,
then, a piece of something
we hold
against nothing.
We praise it.
We see it in each other.
