When you are in love
how does it leave you feeling
eyes smiling body dancing
lost in thought mind reeling

Always smiling always laughing
constantly giving and sharing
touching, reaching out
flowering, extending the caring

When you are in love
does your world seem right
find yourself daydreaming
feeling the fire in you ignite

Resenting time that takes you away
watching the hands turn on the clock
at a loss for words that convey
that between you, you are key and lock

When you are in love
you feel your partner's pain and sorrow
as though it were your own
working together to resolve it all tomorrow

Sharing thoughts like missiles find their target
locked on tight the course has now been set
you're sheltering in the eye of the storm
There's no going back - the two of you have met!

When you are in love - is that how you feel?



 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.

The poet who wrote this has been in love. And you're right, once there, it's too late. A lovely poem about a lovely feeling
Excellent.

Hi RainbowGirl,

I love how the question makes it seem as a first love, or a confirmation of loves existence in your speaker.  Wonderful to read.

Grandma Jo: I've always been in love - with life..  

HUGS

Rus: Clever..*g* But there's only one way to know you're in love: when you don't question how you feel - to quote, played on the soul, no saxophone!

What a wonderful poem!  They way you fit the words together are amazing.  You have perfectly described the way I feel about my "love".  I could never get it out on words, but you have already accomplished that.  Beautiful work.

I can't tell, I'm still young. It speaks more of marriage-type kind of love, I suppose. Half of it speaks true though.

You said:
When you are in love
does your world seem right
find yourself daydreaming
feeling the fire in you ignite

I couldn't agree any more! Beautiful, beautiful poem that speaks directly.
