|When Love Is Set Free ... It Returns
~Marge Tindal~ 1999
When I was quite youthful,
I chanced upon a man,
who taught me more about love
than anyone else ever can.
He lived his life through love,
given to others from his heart.
He never met a love
from which he chose to part.
The love that touched his life,
stayed for the time it was there.
If the person bearing the love should go,
he gave them his heart to wear.
He taught me the reason for loving
should be because it's there.
Any other purpose
is just a burden to bear.
If love goes ... let it.
If love stays ... it's meant to be.
The best love keeps returning.
In order for it to return
you have to set it free.
By following the things he taught me,
I've been in love since then.
Friends of my making keep returning
and my heart still welcomes them.
*This wonderful man was my Grandfather.
He never expected anything in return for giving someone his heart. He said he never got disappointed that way.
It was his to give and so he did.
This one's for my Grandpa.
~*The pen of the poet never runs out of ink, as long as we breathe.*~
