Learning To Love


Poem Commentary

Know what's true - Listen to your heart,

Learning To Love

What is Love?
But merely a chance,
That only a few dare take.
A game of trust -
Which one can master,
If willing to forgive mistakes.

Love and Learn -
And learn to love,
Taking one day at a time.
Know what's true -
Listen to your heart,
Taking note of what you find.

Once you've learned -
And only then,
Can you give your heart away.
Once you've given -
And only then,
Will love then come your way.

What is Love?
I've yet to learn -
But, I think I have a clue.
I bet it feels -
Like the way I feel,
Whenever I'm with you!

Yes, I'm still learning.
Learning to Love.

truly a learning experience one found in so many way, shapes and forms that I think we never stop learning this lesson.



Thanks Angel ... I agree - Love can be many things, ie; wonderful, difficult, confusing, unavoidable, undying, etc ... But, it can take many attempts before we get it right. Such is love .... Thanks again, Ken

awesome write, Ken... what happens if you learned the lessons and know the answer, but no one will listen to you...? do you jut linger in limbo forever? See... ya just created more questions! love the pic!



Thanks Mal! Hmmmm you pose some very good questions... I don't think I'd linger in limbo though .. I'd probably stop looking for it and see if it found me ... if that didn't work ...there's always E-Harmony LOL :) Thx again Ken
