love in the dictionaryLove, it’s such a funny word
It means so many things
Confusing in its simple way
The thought of hope it brings

It cradles you in gentle arms
And rocks you as a child
Safe and warm in loves embrace
Emotionally beguiled

Beware the thoughts of happiness
Take care and guard your fears
For love’s a fickle choice in friends
And slowly disappears
