Love is

She came in, in a flood of fears,
Reeking of negativity,
Reeling all the impossibilities,
He stood solid,
Strong, wise, like a tree
Smiling sweetly.
Calm down, don’t worry, just go slow
It’s not about yesterday or tomorrow it’s about now
And the love we have to share and the love we have to show.
Oh please feel no sorrow…
She pardoned her sadness
and they realised they were hungary
So they ate potato cakes and cheese.
And lettuce, and gherkin and sweetcorn,
Tabasco oooh and a little bit of chutney!
Well this sent them into a whirl of chuckle and swirls
The swell of doubt had been oh so lifted.
Oh how can it be so wrong?
When combined together their recipes are all so gifted…
***scat off***
Oh how can it be so wrong?
When combined together their recipes are all so gifted…
(following poem written by Valerie Carr)
Love is
Many shapes, many sizes,
Many colours, many guises,
Often with bizarre surprises,
Often plain and often boring,
Days on end without soaring,
Hour and hour of basic choring
Love is
Flights of fancy often missing oh
Stretching spaces without kissing and
Sometimes only times for wishing…
Love is
(written by Valerie carr)
But undisturbed the roots grow strong
The solid girth of tree takes time
Then the two will come to know
Both their reasons and their rhymes
The path is full of right and wrongs and
Goes beyond the ending of this songs
But oh just to see you smile and
to laugh in your arms every once in a while.
That is what… Love is
