Love is a blessing for which we all live
a compelling reminder to always forgive
it’s the gentlest touch on a hand unawares
when we’re clamped in the claws of unsettling cares
it’s the bolstering stare from an eye that is true
be it brownish or green or hazel or blue
it could be the answer to more than one ill
or a comforting hug when tears sadly spill
it can be but a word in a poem or song
a superlative tune you can hum all day long.

I once knew a man who was a
the study of birds.
Now I know a man who is a
The study of words.
I love it, every bit.
I thank you so much
You don't need a crutch
You if nothing more...are legit
And how.

A nice beat to your drum
With a little harmonic hum
As you go and play
Giving quite the display

Thanks Carrie, Lynn and Donna, glad you liked my tune 8^D

For sadie and pat
I tip my own hat
This rhyming is fun
Alas now I'm done
