The Gift of Love




The greatest joy comes from love

A warmth within the heart and soul

Like a gift tied in a pretty bow 

To nurture another from the cold


Love comes in many packages 

Each one with its own unique treasures 

A mother, father, child, lover or friend

Each with its own sets of pleasures 


But as we know Love’s joy is fleeting 

Forever is not guaranteed to all

Perhaps in the heart it lives forever 

But too many have experienced its fall


Whether in death onto a new realm 

Or a relationship that is breaking 

Love’s gift in not any guarantee 

That you’ll have a fairytale ending 


Yet be open to the gift of love

Wear it in your heart like a charm

Though it may be a temporary keepsakes 

please let it wrap your soul with its arms 


If you are blessed with love’s joy 

Remember to pass on its pleasure 

There’s so many precious souls 

That will be grateful for the treasure

            I don't usually respond to love poetry, but this one, yes..
            Get it when you can , give it when you can and spread it if you can, even if, as you so rightly assert , it has to be temporary.
            All the best...luck
