From My View…
The face of love is an open flower
that greets the morning sun.
It is the wind that chases leaves
around in circles just for fun.
The face of love is the shining moon
in the dark blue, star-flecked sky.
It is sun-kissed leaves in spring,
and the fledgling learning to fly.
The face of love is rain on the earth,
the stillness of lakes, a subtle breeze
like a butterfly's wing;
the song of blackbirds in the trees.
The face of love is the long lost child;
the heart that yearns for years,
to hold, to care, to love the face
remembered now through gentle tears.
