That little thing we call LOVE

Spread the love

williamshakespeare106569

I imagine
Love tastes like spices, cherries and marmalade
gives us feelings rare that never fade
I picture
Love blowing kisses in the chilling winter breeze
adorn us with a glow to forever demonstrate
I assume
Love plays upon a lover’s dream and sighs
creates moments that bewitch, turn our minds awry
I believe
Love accepts with all our faults and flaws
search deep into my eyes you ‘ll find it be not false
