David Wood

Rookie - 107 Points (07 April 1950 / London)


True love transcends all, it is
The power behind the universe.
Every human will experience it
At some point in their life.

Even species demonstrate
Feelings of love in their own way;
Love they show towards their young,
And when mating for life.

But what is love? Love cannot be tamed?
You cannot bottle love or put it in
A drawer and lock it away. It comes
From deep within the soul and is
Freely expressed.

Love has two homes, the first home is
With the person who loves and the second
Home is with the recipient. To love and
Be loved is life’s ultimate goal. Life’s
Greatest treasure store.

But we live in a world where love is not
Expressed, where it is hidden from view,
Where hatred exists between people
And an eye for an eye prevails.
We need to give love a chance to thrive.

    Never i can disagreed with you...Love is when you give to the one, giver to recipient(s) no matter who it is when the love linking between two hearts, only bliss and self stand for you...No matter who giving or who receive it, when it happened it calms you...like a mom to child, old to young, friend to friend, lovers, when it comes it calms...and peace is played in name called Harmony_Soul (Report) Reply

Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
