I live to love.
To fill people's lives
with joy unspeakable
To empart courage
To the disenchanted
I live to Love.
To speak to a person
what they so need to hear
To give a smile
to someone in a dark situation
I live to Love.
Speaking peace to someone
who is standing in a shifting boat
Cast aside by the storms of life
About to be capsized by the waves
I live to Love.
To hold open my heart
Lay it bare for all to see.
Now only if I had someone,
Who lived to Love me.

I understand it completely, jfreak! I've felt that way myself so often and you have captured it so well. Thanks.

I agree with Elizabeth,"you have captured it so well".It warms my heart to know there are others out here that still feel this way too!

Hi Elizabeth....What I was trying to say is that sometimes the world feels so cold and uncaring;people often do not take the time or even care to take the time to make someone else's day.

Oh-whoops! While I was reading this, Pepper, I didn't even see your posting (notice we submitted at about the same time). I was actually talking to jfreak and wondering why he was saying "no thank you". If you can answer my question, jfreak, please do so!
