Looking for Love


I didn’t have much strength to draw from
When my heart was new
Nothing in my life was constant
No one there to turn to.
I tried real hard and did my best
To take life as it came
Learning slowly to stand alone,
When I felt the rain

But did I stop looking for love,
No I never could be that brave.
I thought the day I learned to live without love
They could lay me in my grave.
So I just continued on, doing what I could
To find that one, special one
Who would do my heart so good.

I’m older now, but still messing up
Always trying to ease the hurt.
No risk too great, be the prize true love
With disaster I will flirt.
But dead ends are growing tiresome
And each one takes its toll
A bright spot leaves my life
And a dark one joins my soul.

Now should I stop looking for love
I still am not that brave
The day I learn to live without love
They can lay me in my grave
So I just continue on
Doing everything I can
To find that one, special one
I need to hold my hand.

Some may say I’m crazy
And a masochist at worst.
But one day I know he’ll be here
To quench this loving thirst.
Until that day I’ll carry on
Taking every chance I must
To find that one, special one
The one that I can always trust.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this around the age of 30 something. I am now almost 49 and yes, I have finally stopped looking for love. Maybe, someday, in a perfect world...

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
