A Heart within a Heart

Loves internal embrace

Flwr - Lady in red
A heart within a heart, true love sharing in peace their inner space,
Sweetness wrapped in memories, pure softness wrapped in lace.
The inner heart sings quietly, the outer heart echoes the tune,
Joined in perfect harmony beneath the sun, the sky and the moon.
Their hearts move gracefully, caressing each other in gentle care,
It matters not where they are, for the two hearts are aware:

That love is a breathe within a moment, the whisper in the night,
That love is forever present, even when they are out of sight.
That love restores happiness, even though sadness seems to win,
That love brings hope eternal, even when those darker days begin.
That love lives deep within, a precious emotion that will remain,
Until the hearts are reunited, and love’s song resounds again.

If Love lasts but for a Moment

Love is endless

Flwr F - 40
If love lasts but for a moment before gently fading away,
Then eternity is just a second within an endless day.
The soul is reflected within us, timeless, immortal and true,
And loves purity lies within the soul, strong and faithful to you.

The spirit of life dances with the soul, twirling within the night
Never ending or weakening, and never fading from our sight.
The outer world may pass into shadows, our life losing its way,
But the inner love surrounds our soul, and is always there to stay.

A Children’s Kiss

The love of a child

tree blossum small
A children’s kiss, a quick peck on the cheek,
Before they run off to play hide and seek.
A moment that shared, an awareness of you,
Before their minds hunt out for the new.
A brief touch of love, just a single heartbeat,
Before all you hear is the sound of their feet.

A children’s kiss, a kiss given to last,
To remain in your memory of their young past.
A moment of joy, when watching them play,
To keep in your heart and to not fade away.
A brief second in time, so tender and mild,
To remember forever the love of your child.

Laughter in the Wind

The Joy of childhood

W area 04 seat W to V

Laughter in the wind, rushing round the trees,
The sound of children playing, carried by the breeze.
A game of hide and seek, or running in a race,
The remains of an ice-cream smothering the face.

Playing out in springtime, the evenings getting light,
And in the heat of summer, having a water fight.
On an autumn morning picking berries off a hedge,
Across a winters snowy field, playing on a sledge.

A quiet moment for drawing or reading a book,
Or helping in a kitchen, learning how to cook.
Exploring the garden, a secret camp behind the shed,
Ignoring the salad and eating the crisps instead.

The memories of childhood are carried forever more,
A happy time for learning is what it is meant for.
Kept safely away from danger, protected as they grow,
Security within the home is what every child should know.

Moods of Love

In all its shapes and sizes

The newness of love born at a baby’s birth,
The calmness of love within a storm of mirth,
The sadness of love, by memories enthralled,
The movement of love when compassion’s recalled.

The giving of love to those who are in need,
The strength of love is as small as a seed,
The sharing of love brings us all together,
The weight of love is as light as a feather.

The moods of love are endless and free,
Entwined within the heart of humanity,
Boundless, faithful and forever true,
Loves eternal soul forever within you.
