Have You Ever Been In Love? - Poem by Lora Colon

Have you ever been in love,
Did the angels sing for you?
You could tread fire, but that heavenly choir
Is all you'd answer to

Have you ever been in love,
Did you sigh, then kneel and pray
That every kiss would feel like this
And tomorrow would be like today?

Have you ever been in love,
Were you sure this love was the one,
Only to get near and have it disappear
Like a snowflake in the sun?

Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever loved too much?
Like orbs of light floating in the night,
You reach out, but there's nothing to touch

Have you ever been in love,
Have you yet to feel the sting
Of good-bye's refrain, and the awful pain
That only love can bring?

Have you ever been in love?
Do you know that someday you'll weep?
A perfect love, though blessed from above,
Is impossible to keep!

    hey! when i submitted my new poem (see below) , it didn't sound 'right'! i've changed it to this:

    Impossible To Keep... [ Inspired By Lora Colon's Have You Ever Been In Love; Mostly True] - Poem by Bri Edwards

    For me, loving comes easy,
    and it doesn't make me queasy...
    (thank goodness) .
    A winsome smile, a bedding trial,
    and out comes wedding band,

    but in a year or four or nine, the smile...
    is gone; I release my once-loved one's hand.

    But, cheer up! . Bri does not (often) weep,
    'cause so far he's learned:

    'Love is impossible to keep.'

    who? me? ! many times! !

    no angels sang to me. were they supposed to? maybe they were on vacation?

    Were you sure this love was the one............yes, the 'love du joir'.
    love too much? not too much! some might say too little.

    Like orbs of light floating in the night,
    You reach out, but there's nothing to touch..............you are making me think of the girls at Hooters!

    luckily the sting of 'lost love' has never been as bad as some bee stings i've received. it comes from
    not loving 'completely' AND from the gradual wearing away of love by the misbehavior (ha ha) of my bitches...
    ............i mean wives/girlfriends!

    Have you ever been in love?
    Do you know that someday you'll weep?
    A perfect love, though blessed from above,
    Is impossible to keep!

    ah! inspiration! ! !
