The Wonder of Love

Updated on October 14, 2016

It’s not the stars above

or the kisses shared.

It’s the trust and the feeling in one’s heart -

that is the wonder of love.

If love isn’t true,

no candlelit nights

or champagne,

can make it sparkle.

It’s not the stories

that are told

or the passions shared.

It’s the friendship and closeness,

between two people -

that is the wonder of love.

It’s not the love songs,

sung so beautifully,

the words will be meaningless,

unless your love is true.

It’s the hand holding

and the companionable silences,

the warm embraces,

dancing in the moonlight -

that is the wonder of love.

Walks in the rain,

beneath the stars,

when they are shining bright.

Through all the seasons,

as they come and go,

love to guide us,

day in and day out.

Sharing the sunrises

and the sunsets,

rejoicing together,

loving one another –

that is the wonder of love.

It’s not the grand old stories

that tell of past lovers

and praise their glories.

It’s being able,

to look into each other’s eyes

and share glad smiles -

that is the wonder of love.

Words from love poems,

straight from the heart,

that bring such warmth,

with eye shining full of love

and genuine bright smiles.

It’s walking through this life

and sharing the good and bad times,

through all the tears,

through all the years,

caring for each other -

that is the wonder of love.

      Ah!! So, so sweet Gypsy. I was walking, waltzing, picturing and sharing these charming sentiments with you. So touching! So soothing to the heart!

      More than adequate to tuck me into my cosy bed here in Heidleberg, Germany. Nice and comforting feel, this one.

      This did feel like a dance melody. Just add some notes and dance along while it plays on the Victrola. :)

      Yeah. I loved Elvis from the Caribbean, initially through his films. A true icon.

      That is why Elvis will always remain the King of Rock and Roll let one try to take his throne. Hope you have a rockin' good week ahead.
