Love is the gift that gives,
from one heart to another.
To a sister, father,friend,
To a brother,mother, lover.
Love is the gift that gives,
Unselfish and not vain,
Through times of happiness as well as times of pain.
Love is a gift that gives,
It is the best gift of all,
So give your gift of love,
Do not let it be small.
Open wide and smile...Give your gift of love
A gift that will last across the miles.
So easy to do, easy to give, to those who are in need of it so.
Those who are hurt,lonely, or sad,
Give to those who are good or bad.
So when in thought of needing to give, give something that will last,
Give the gift of love...to everyones heart that you will pass,
Thoughout our lives,
Give the gift that gives,
and keeps on giving.
The gift of love,
This makes life worth living!

WOW! This was a terrific poem! So true! That's what we do here in this Passions home. We give to each other through our words. We help each other, laugh with each other, cry with each other. That's what makes it what it is. This was really great!

Thank you Romantic. It is amazing what some will see on a screen, and are able to read deep into others so well, and the truly fortunate ones who post their pain or loss will receive wonderful answers/suggestions/or words of encouragement. You've done a nice job of getting the message across.

Why does eveyone have such a high view of love is it cause they have all experienced it.
