Love of Life

Love lies fallow in every lonely heart,
ready to sprout, take root.  He hopes,
looks for the chance to bring sustenance
into his life, have someone to love and be
loved by.  She prays she doesn’t miss
out or give up too soon, waits for the spark
when their eyes meet.

I want to tell them relax, it’s all chance,
a big gamble, nothing is ever for sure.
Enjoy today and the love you share,
there’s no guarantees about tomorrow.

So hard to write honestly of love, but you caught it, Judy.

How true.

True TRUE. All of us can only enjoy every moment we have with those we love and let them know that we are. I also like the image of love lying fallow, not being absent, in lonely hearts.
