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
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 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.
Hope you and yours are keeping safe and well.
