What Is It All About (Love)


I don’t know what is wrong with my life
Or why no one can really love me for who I am
I can’t comprehend why every time I open my mouth
... That no one understands.

What is this all about….

It’s about wanting to be loved by you
And feeling the warmth in my heart
It’s about being held close by you.
So that I don’t fall apart.

It’s about the lack of love, the lack of life,
And me being free.
Not free from you or free from life
But free to be me.

It’s about having someone love you
For who you really are
Having that warm feeling
That you are never far.

It’s about wanting to be with you
Every minute of the day
It’s about you wanting to make love to me
Every time I turn away.

I want to hear “kiss me Baby.
Take me I am yours”
I want to feel finger tips in my skin
And make love on sandy shores.

It’s about wanting to feel the love
That I have never really had
It’s about living life and loving it
Rather that always being sad.

It’s about stopping the hurt deep inside
That’s tearing at my heart
It’s about keeping us together,
Not tearing us apart.

You say that I never cry for you
And that means I have no heart,
I say that I would die for you,
Before the first tear could start.

So, that is what its all about,
There is no more to be said.
Bottom line, is I love you
And you are my life’s bread.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
