If you don't find it with your partner,
Your life together will fade away.
It must be true, It must be real
If not, your heart can't stay.

Honesty and respect are needed
And the open words be clear
If happiness is to be succeeded
Then forever with them is dear.

You can not base life on a lie
It will wrap your soul in sin
Filled with sadness through out your life
It haunts you, you can not win

Open your heart and say what is true
Have courage to be real
Confide your feelings openly
And your happiness is sealed.

Play no games and life is good
Those feelings will tend to show
And in ones heart when love is there
For each other it will surely grow

great great philosophy on life purpleswan. I think you've wrapped it all up in one "honest" package here. a very wise message that should be spread.



Thank you Dragonfly. I feel very strongly about this subject. I'm glad you feel it worthy of merrit. Its true, there is not enough honesty and openness in the world. I'm honored by your rating. TY

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
