Love is...

Love is...

Love is a feeling that is so sweet
Love is a feeling that you cannot beat
Love is a feeling that you feel deep

Love is...

Love is a challenge you have to face
Love is an emotion you must embrace
Love is a topic that stays on your case

Love is...

Love is an issue that cannot be ignored
Love is around when things get bored
Love is like a bird ready to soar

Love is...

Love is around when times get bad
Love is there when you get sad
Love is really all you ever had

Love is...

Love is me and love is you
Love is made not by one but by two
Love is the feeling felt by you

Love is...

    Very Good nice rythem and beat, except for the Stanza:

    Love is an issue that cannot be ignored
    Love is around when things get bored
    Love is like a bird ready to soar

    Might flow better as..

    Love is an issue that can't be ignored
    Love is around when things get bored
    Love is a bird ready to soar

    But then this is #177, so it may also be perfect as is.

    Nice work all around (Report) Reply

    Wow, I love this Love have so many meaning, but yet so confuse by the word love, knowing, I used to love someone, and now He doesn't even love me, anymore. Well, I hope to feel that love you have One day- knowing, I don't think its exist to me anymore, knowing I don't even want to experience something like that again, because to me, I just end up hurting all over again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
