I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

What Love Should Be
What Love Should Be

Love should be kind

Understanding

Love should be sacrifice

Not Demanding

Love should be a kiss in the morning

A hug in the afternoon

A kiss in the evening

And a tight squeeze of affection at night

Love should be loving in front of,

Loving also behind

Love should be more than an image

Love should start from the mind

Love should be respectful

Love should be equal

Love should be like an everlasting happy ending sequel

Love should be listening

Appreciation of each other’s views

Love should be broadcasted like the evening news

If you want to know what love should be,

Just look at me

Just look at you

Love is all the beautiful things together we do.


Love should be waking up beside you morning after morning

Love should be you in my arms dancing

love should be making breakfast for you while you sleep

My love is forever keeps

There is nothing that I wouldn't do to please you

There is no place I wouldn't go to be with you

Love should be kind, gentle and forgiving

Love should be the layer of hope and trust for us both

Love should be my eternal pledge of happiness, I swear this oath.

      I will do better thanks to this. More hugs for sure.

      But the huge tool sale is going on right next to a church today -- I love tools and hug them too. I need a new shrink.
