Poem number twenty-one NaPoWriMo
It isn’t love unless,
it come straight from the heart.
It has to be right from the start,
that first feeling,
that just sends you reeling,
The touch of the hand,
the kiss like the most potent wine
and most importantly –
the love has to come straight from the heart.
Never can there be anything,
more special than a love,
that takes the heart to wing like a dove,
every time love enters the room.
No matter what happens,
no matter if there are smiles
or if tears fall,
the emotions that end in love –
must come straight from the heart.
After every storm,
when the sunrays shine through,
rainbows won’t be as bright,
if they don’t bring love
and love has to come straight from the heart.
All the prettiest flower bouques,
are already wilted,
if presented with no love,
any day that shines,
can be just as dark and gray,
if it brings no love
and if it brings love –
it has to come straight from the heart.
Often times we lose our way,
love seems to have gone astray,
all of that doesn’t matter –
as long as we find our way back.
There can be nothing we lack,
nothing that we cannot overcome,
as long as there is love
and as long as it comes –
straight from the heart.
