Love could have taken an easier path
Long valley thorns
Desert sand storms
Hurricane seas
One or all of these

Love could have taken an easier path
But it did not
And now you're caught
Wrestling your plight
Fighting the good fight

Love could have taken an easier path
But it chose you
To suffer through
This road to take
With heart at stake

Love could have taken an easier path
But if it had
Would you be glad
For what would not be
And to be pain free

Love could have taken an easier path
But there it is
The same as his
A road to share
But how to get there

Love could have taken an easier path
But it demands so much more

Anything worth working for is worth having.. and it's all the sweeter when you get it. Nice one, Andrew!

I really like this one...... love is the most honored thing (to many, not all) to have, and it is so hard to come by.

I think this is a sentiment that most understand, and you have said it so well.

Nicely done Mr. Scott......my paths of love are usually dead ends. (come to think of it, most of my "loves" had "dead ends" too?....Oh well....some of them paths are one way yanno?
Many have "No U turns"....and some are hilly and bumpy and have potholes.....And poor suckers like us keep traveling those same paths into oblivion?......

, Andrew. Don't ya just sometimes wish there was a roadmap?

------------------
I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Andrew, I think that is why love is so great, because it DOES demand more. It is our inspiration and our motivation.

There is much to your words Andrew. Indeed, an easier path might not have yielded the same appreciation...Good poem.

Lady Hoot: How appropriate that you should be the first as this piece was mostly inspired by your recent travels. I hope they lead to beautiful pastures.

Marilyn: Looks like the Lady beat you to it, but thank you so much for the attempt.

Sey: Your stuff is tops... thanks for lookin' in.

Lady D: Good to be back... thanks for noticing.

Ms. DeVine: Your time and words are most appreciated.

SD: Thanks for checking in... glad you liked.
Martie: Thank you as well.

Toe & Ohme: I got a feeling if there was a road map we would all end up in the same place, and boy what a mess that would be!

Caroline: And we like you too!

Tara: Ditto that!

Michael: How true! Thanks for checking in.

Pepper: Last, but never least... I bow to you and all the above for your kindness.

Thanks One and All!

Man! I just hate it when I forget how to type, spell, and proof read.
