Of Love

Poem by Bill Cantrell ...

Faces change and rearrange,
Seems nothing stays the same
Yet, love endures forevermore
And could never face such shame

Friends will bend under the wind,
And mothers have walked away
Yet, love will bring them back again
Perhaps this time, to stay

For I have seen the face of love,
Throughout my darkest days and nights
A spark has set my soul on fire,
Under the spell of your baby blue eyes
