Always Embrace Love

Updated on September 8, 2017

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Warm like the sunshine,

love makes hearts glad,

there isn’t a moment that goes by -

when you can’t say, love is grand.

Without love,

the world is cold,

like in the wintertime -

when there is no one to hold.

Like islands,

drifting on the sea,

searching for a friendly shore -

that will bring happiness and so much more.

Feelings of love,

are like sailing ships,

blown by the winds,

to and fro.

Warm as the summer sun,

as the heart beats ever faster,

anywhere at anytime,

we embrace them.

Feelings of emotion,

love brings them,

flying on the wings -

of doves high in the sky.

Love brings memories,

of lazy days,

with just you and me

and the world so far away.

No matter where we are,

as long as together we’ll be,

there is nothing that’s more special -

than the love that we share.

Take my love

and hold on tight,

we’ll be alright -

as long as the feelings are true.

Love lasts through all the seasons,

come rain or shine,

in the good times and the bad,

never will there be a time it won’t make you glad.

Like rainbows after the rain,

like the wind blowing the clouds away,

like a gray day that’s suddenly sunny -

love can make you feel funny.

Shipwrecked upon a foreign shore,

love boats gone astray,

trying hard to find,

a way back to this heart of mine.

Love is never simple

and there are no special rules,

it’s a game of give and take -

never knowing if it’s real or fake.

Just give love a chance,

because without it the world,

can be so harsh and cold -

be bold and embrace it.

Anywhere and anytime,

love is a wonderful part of life,

as two hearts and souls,

are forever entwined.

Love is a song,

Love is a dance

Love is a feeling -

it will send you reeling .

      We all experience love at different times. You awaken that love and create more love at the same time. Now that is so special. Thank you for writing so many inspiring poems.

      I love those lines about "love being like sailing ships, blown to and fro by the wind".

      You dont know when love happens or how long it will last.

      You dont know if your love will become a safe harbour or remain a ride on the tumultuous waves of a ocean.

      But healthy love and like, is our glue, light and inspiration.

      Thank you Gypsy-lovely poem.

      One line in this - "never knowing if it's real or fake" - reminds me of something a friend shared the other day. She was speaking about suddenly realizing that she can feel again whereas before, she felt totally numb. She described it as knowing she loved her family and others in George, but didn't really feel the emotions. And now she reacts with emotional responses that she is having to learn how to control, if that makes sense. But it's worth it to her just to feel human again. I think love is a vital part of what makes life worthwhile and of what makes us uniquely human. Animals love and feel, too, but humans are able to reach beyond that. I believe feelings of compassion, empathy, even anger originate from being able to live and a desire to be loved.
