    This keeps me wondering...keeps me thinking...keeps me remembering. Perhaps I should just write it out on a card and pin it above my desk. Thanks for sharing, Sonya. N (Report) Reply

    This is wonderful indeed..
    Nothing else matters, but love..
    Sometimes, people feel love alone is not enough..

    Yet I do agree it is the love that drives us forward, that keep us bound together...
    This is very nice.. good one to start the day..

    with lots of love

    This poem makes me think of the song 'All you need is love'. A simple but effective and vivid verse, thanks for sharing, Sonya :)

    I love your connections between your words Sonya as they link up to love. Love is the beginning and the end and is everything. Love is what turns the world and and this is everything indeed.
