World of Love

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.

world-of-love

Love is what makes the world,

a much better place to live,

makes people smile -

all the while.


The world has always smiled,

upon lovers everywhere,

walking hand in hand -

looking so divine.


Love was meant for everyone,

especially for the lonely.

Warm smiles, warm thoughts -

thawing even the coldest hearts.


Love is like a ray of sunshine,

a bit of blue sky,

to chase away the rain

and to brighten each day.


When it seems there isn’t,

very much left to say,

hugs and kisses,

always have their way.


Love is like the flowers,

that bloom in the spring,

like songs waiting to be sung

and music filling the air.


It’s a special part,

of all the greatest love stories ever told,

a way to unite two hearts -

to have and to hold.


All the dances,

ever danced by two,

holding each other,

under a moon that’s full.


No day was ever complete,

without a heart,

full of love

making it feel like a dove in flight.


Love is like a wave upon the ocean,

always seeking some new shore,

like a beacon from a lighthouse -

ever searching.


Every sunrise,

signifies a new day filled with love,

every sunset -

seeks a hand to hold.


Let love fill your heart,

let it sing to you,

there is nothing more magical -

than a world that’s filled with love.

Glad you enjoyed this Shauna. The words you mention are familiar but I have forgotten who sings them. Ah, if only love could fill the world. Hope you have a great weekend.

Nice one Gypsy. The Beatles seemed to have got it right, all those years ago. Yet we are still fighting ... struggling ... beautiful Love.
