(040) All We Need Is Love Poem by Melvina Germain

(040) All We Need Is Love

Rating: 3.4

We shall dance the night away,
no matter what people say.
Secret places we have found,
in your arms I’m bound.

You’ll kiss me tenderly,
our love we share deeply.
If only everyone knew,
we share a love that’s true.

Tomorrow we meet with friends and family.
I’ll announce my intentions to marry thee.
Mouths will dropp eyebrows will rise.
We’ll have created a huge surprise.

Mom and Dad will surely moan.
Brother Ted has troubles of his own.
Aunt Shirley will wish us well.
Carol will say “go to hell”.

We look at each other and all we see,
is the love we hold inside.
We have no color, black or white.
All we need is Love to survive.

'Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. It's easy. All you need is Love.' The title pulled me in Melvina (yes, I'm a Beatle fan) . Wonderful poem, you are a great storyteller! ......................All the best, Diane

I was nearly walking down the aisle once more, I must admit it felt good. Super love poem by what must be a lovely lady. If only we could all love in unity. Bob
