This Love - Poem by Richard Netherland Cook

How much love can one person have
To love until it hurts?
Some are not blessed with this lasting love
They only love in spurts.

To love someone so much that your mind
Looses all control;
When someone holds all your heart,
And encompasses all you soul.

This love loves in spite of
Hurtful words and sad deeds
One love knows the other,
And what the other love needs.

This love gives hope and trust
Treasured memories and tenderness;
Changes lives, fullfills wishes
This love knows forgiveness.

Two lives merge in this love
Two hearts come together
No one breaks the ties that bind
This love last forever.

This love is so cherished
A heart cries when this love cries,
A heart hurts when this love hurts,
A heart dies when this love dies.
