Don't Play Hide And Seek
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Love is where you find it,
in a car, on a bus or a train.
Love is there for the taking
at the ocean, on a mountain top,
or even in the rain.

If you seize the opportunity
and open your heart to love,
you'll find it coming
from all directions,
sent to you with love.

Don't play hide and seek,
for love may pass you by ...
Put your heart out to seekers
and catch so much love, as you try.

Don't shun the looks of others
who may just be looking too,
grab the nearest love you can
and hold it close to you.

Give your heart away,
frequently and often.
The love that you will gather
will cause your heart to soften.

A heart full of love,
the best it's ever been.
Give your heart away ...
share it with a friend.

Yes, give your heart away and take a chance someone may give you theirs in return, rather than not taking a chance, worrying you may get hurt.
Go out on a limb!

I'll be easy to find
When love comes looking for me.
I'll stand there
With my arms out
So that I am easy to see.

No hide and seek - no guessing games
Will I play.
When love comes in to call my name
I'll say "Right this way!"

The stars may fall from above,
The moon may fade out of sight
But angels will be watching
And my love will light up the night.

Though some will say the way
Of love is blind
As for me
I'll be easy to find.

Other Elizabeth -
Thank you for the vote.

Joy14 -
Always reaching out
is the only way to find
a love that needs to be found.

Hoot - You said it all with your smile.

Balladeer -
Sing it to me, Johnny.
'Chances Are' you'll get it right.
Then when 'Misty' comes along,
she'll meet you in the night.

OhMe -
Dog paddle, backstroke
breast stroke and more.
What ever it takes JUST DO IT
to get to love's new shore.

Elosise - Thank you friend.
