Itís not as if I dropped love
on the ground to neíer be found
it simply found its way into
the drama of their lives.

Ignored it thinks to maybe be
a parrot trained to not ere talk
or perhaps a homeless vagabond
with nought to bring to the party.

And so it studies and ponders
each and every drama
making notes by the score
until it simply is no more.

But thatís not true because, you see
it simply came right back to me!

In other words, Helen, what goes around comes around.

"But thatís not true because, you see

Right where it belongs!
Nice pondering in this,
you know: "Not as if..."

Enjoyed the read.

JL

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!

I've been told to read the "love chapter" in the bible, substituting your name for "love" at every occurence.  Quite an eye opening experience it proved to be, not only revealing the traits in me that were not love based, but the traits in others that are.  Love is even more beautiful when recognized for all it truly is... And yes, it often comes back to you.  Very enjoyable read.

Love is an entity all in its own and cannot be told what to do....;0)

Lovely write from a lovely lady

Thanks everyone!  LeeJ - I have fairly recently come to the very same conclusion.  I just wish it was more flexible though and able to move more easily from one ... what? ... "desire" to the next.  Training school for love that is for sure.
