“My Love” 11-19-09
Love is patient love is kind,
It amazes but it’s blind.
Love is laughter overjoyed,
It happens to young girls and older boys.
Not because it robs the cradle,
Just as it cripples it enables.
It starts out as a crush,
It improves from little into much.
As it trickles it does favors,
It introduces to family and neighbors,
It takes you up like elevators.
It makes you fly as it takes you high,
In tough times it helps you get by.
It takes your hand and soothes your back,
When the load is too heavy it picks up slack.
Words can’t express what I gain from it,
And as you achieve I accomplish.
For you I’d try and die by slug,
Bound by blood you are my love.
