Love is a chance
you must take
Sometimes it works out
or it could lead to heartbreak

Love is a roll
of the dice
Sometimes it hurts
other times it's nice

Love is a chance
I choose NOT to take -
for I have grown weary
from all the heartache...

But who says that "lonesome"
is any less painful -
I'll just close my eyes now
and dream of my angel...

He holds me at night
and he doesn't ask "why"
I'm not able to love him -
together - we cry...

He whispers to me
as he lulls me to sleep -
in the arms of my angel
I love not - and weep...


Sorry to be so BLUE about the whole idea....

That's truly remarkable
beautiful illustration of your heart

Love is a chance,
That is worth every risk.
To know love completes you,
The whom you can't pick.

It happens upon you,
When you're unaware.
It slips up beside you,
And not can compare.

Embrace it completely,
Each time it is near.
For knowing true love,
Is worth every tear.

Love is a dance
That can take us through life-
Swaying this way and that
With one so right.

Love is a song
That knows no end-
For it carries on
In the hearts of our friends.

Jeffrey~

Love is the heartsong
of one with no doubt.
The very best feeling
from the inside out.

The butterfly on wing
that simply settles
on the very sweetest of
the spring flower petals.

Drinking full
from the nectar therein,
returning again
and again and again.

Love is a chance
that is taken with glee.
Love is you,
loving me.

~*Marge*~

Thank you all for your replies
All would be a fitting completion to this poem, but of all the replies so far I think
Marilyn's is the most fitting end to this piece.
TY all again

hehehe Sorry Jeffrey...Mine didn't go too well with yours.  I seem to be the only sourpuss here!  LOL  
Still dusting myself off from the last fallout.  Definately not in a hurry to get back into another!   I pray one day, someone makes me believe again, in true love.  All the times I have believed, have only turned out to be dreams, or stars that I can't catch, ya know?  You've helped me out alot with this one, that piece I wrote helped me heal a little on the inside.  It's hard to admit when you're down, and have lost hope.  Thank you again.

Jeffrey,
Love is a bond,
You must respond.
Love is the very goal,
The complete of the soul.
