Love With A Capital L


Life Is Not Always Perfect

Neither is love

We have to take the good with the bad

When we have a good time

The feelings that we feel are real

They make my body shake

I want more

So much more

When I see your smile

Laughing at the littlest thing

Can make any sad feelings disappear

They might come back later

Actually, I know they will

I try not to think about them

Since I am having such a wonderful time

Being together is sharing life's emotions

We are one great big jumbo grab bag of thoughts

These thoughts click together

Like gears on a bicycle

Sometimes we are going along nice and smooth at a high speed

Other times we are pumping hard trying to go up the biggest hill

Then soon we are gliding without peddling at all

Letting the wind blow us along

The high's keep going higher

The joy of your reaction to my touch

The lows sneak in when I wasn't looking

They make me cringe every time

I know all the good feelings I have repeated so often

So I will do everything I can

To feel that way again

Holding you close

Kissing you lightly

Looking at you

Through my beautiful blues

I can see your lovely browns

They make me want to dance all around

Is it happiness that I found?

A lovely concoction of the sweetest joys in life

The greatest desires still left to explore

Leaves us room for so much more

We can't stop now

When the kindness is left behind

Shake off that unhappy feeling

There is no time to waste

Let's see how to make both of us feel great

Come close

Don't say a word

Let me hold you in my arms

Like old times

Thinking of all the best times in our minds

That we have experienced

Feel that feeling

That not only keeps us together

Joins us once again

When we are pulled apart

No friction

No false starts

Plain old love

That never grows old

Straight from the heart

Ann Carr We went out to water the tomato plants and we found two ugly tomato bugs. It is amazing how they find there way to your garden. Have a great day.

Fencing and concreting is being done to spruce up the front and the side of the drive; all on-going work which takes months but we don't care. It'll get done all in good time.

Happy as a sandboy comes from the days when publicans used to have sand all over the floor to soak up spilled, beer, spit and goodness knows what else; a young boy would bring the sand and scatter it around the floor, then be paid with ale or the like - so the boy was merry with alcohol, the merry also meaning happy!

I've had a great Monday, thanks and wish the same to you.

Ann Carr It is so nice to hear when people do projects around there home. They take time and they will give your home the personal touch. We have tomato plants in buckets and we just started getting small tomatoes. A week ago our plants were dying. Good luck with the concrete steps and please share more about your garden. I think we both like to be happy as a sandboy. My mother use to say like two peas in a pod. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a beautiful Monday.

Ann Carr from SW England on August 02, 2020:

Thank you. It's a lovely sunny day here and the hens are happy in the garden, not churning up too much! My partner is working hard sorting out the concrete steps so that they look much nicer. We are in harmony just about all the time. Everyone has ups and downs but as long as we talk, they're overcome. Off to see the little ones tomorrow so I'm as happy as a sand-boy - now where did that phrase come from?!

Ann Carr I agree with you to talk and work through them when there is a hitch. Love can be so powerful and amazing when all things are going well. There are so many different degrees of love that make it an incredible challenge. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I wonder how to create a love that never stops. How great it is that we can send our love all over the world and encourage so many to love more than ever before. In the end, love goes full circle and comes back stronger and more fascinating than ever. Everyone here is healthy and safe. Wishing you all the comforts of peace and happiness and lots of endless love. Please, stay safe wishing you and your family a beautiful day.

Gypsy Rose Lee The love that keeps giving is worth sharing. Love is out there for everyone and can be enjoyed by all. There are special times where I think the love that I feel is unmatched then there are other times we have to see through our differences and build up our love to keep feeling happy. We learn as we go. Thank you so much for your comment and your lovely thoughts. I don't think love is something you have and once you lose it, then it is gone forever. I think it is back to the building stage where it is growing and we just don't know it. Then when the time is right love will bloom again. Giving back what you so much enjoy. Have a beautiful Sunday.

I could tell that poem came straight from the heart. I am glad you have the love and you can bask in the warm glow.

Ann Carr from SW England on July 31, 2020:

'Plain old love', yes, that can do wonders.

I love the cycling analogy - it works well!

We all have ups and downs but as long as we can talk and work them through, all is well.

Great thoughts.

Hope you and yours are keeping safe and well.
