"Love is a river"
  My grandad once said,
"Don't drink too much or it will go to your head"
"Don't jump into deep or it may pull you down"
"Don't swim too fast or you'll surely drown".

"Love is a merry-go-round"
  My daddy once said,
"Too much too soon will give you a bad head"
"When you get on that ride beware of the bends"
"Prepare yourself sweetheart for the feelings it sends".

"Love from a man"
  My mum said to me,
"Feels like the sting you get from a bee"
"Trust in that bee as you would a man"
"Cus they will sting you and hurt you whenever they can".

My grandma once said,
  "Treat love as a bird"
"Look after that bird and you will never get hurt"
"Love and respect him and by you he will stay"
"Abuse and mistreat him..he will fly away".

Love from many different perspectives! Well done, Lisa! I guess love is whatever you make of it!  A box of chocolates is always nice! Nice to see you, Lisa!

I say your Grandma she was wise
But you should be treated the same you realize
The poem is nice and clear
Well done and written my dear
Love is something treated well
Keep's our hearts in binding spell
Thanks for the poem I might shall say
With words you have a way
Thx



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

A wonderful box of chocolates worth sharing...I like the style with which you wrote this Lisa....and I really enjoyed the read...

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

I like this format....If love is a box of Chocolates.....that may explain why I like it so much  

 Being in love with someone is more than just saying "I love you"

Some very good advice, it's a shame sometimes we choose to listen a little too late...then go back saying I wish I woulda listened!!!!  Good poem!

I've been studying this thing called Love.

Come what sorrow can,
It cannot countervail the exchange of joy
That one short moment gives me in her sight.

Excellent...

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
