Always Love You
Here is another beautifully written, poignant poem about love, by Martin Silvester …
Always Love You
LOVE is there from the first baby cry,
And remains in your heart till the day that you die.
It takes many forms as you travel life’s road,
It comforts your soul and it lightens your load.
You have love for your father, your sister, your brother,
With an extra helping, for your children and mother.
You love little things, that brighten your day,
Your grandchildren smiling, or a puppy at play.
The sound of a birdsong, high in a tree,
The warmth of the sun, or old friends that you see.
A good book or movie that makes your heart sing,
Or remembering the day when you put on a ring.
Be glad that you worry, when your loved ones are late,
Cherish the relief, when they come through the gate.
Be glad that you feel love with all it’s emotions,
It’s a free gift of life, needing no pills or potions.
We don’t always get back, the love that we give,
Like plants needing water…we need love to live.
So we reach out our hand with our heart in its palm,
And hope and trust, it will come to no harm.
Oh…the hurt that we feel when loves not returned,
When it’s thrown on the ground and it’s trampled and burned.
Just take a deep breath and see through the pain,
Don’t let it stop you, from loving again.
Be glad of the love that will in your heart stay,
Rejoice as it pushes the storm clouds away.
We all have a dark side that lurks in the wings,
But it won’t have a chance, all the time that love sings.
So..love and be loved and enjoy every day,
Don’t let pain win the hand and push love away.
Wear your heart on your sleeve in all that you do,
And always remember…to always…love you.
