True love is a durable fire,
in the mind ever burning,
never sick, never old, never dead,
from itself never turning.
Sir Walter Ralegh (1599)

Such love I cannot analyse;
it does not rest in lips or eyes,
neither in kisses nor caress.
Partly, I know, it's gentleness
and understanding in one word
or in brief letters. It's preserved
by trust and by respect and awe.
These are the words I'm feeling for.
Two people, yes, two lasting friends.
The giving comes, the taking ends.
There is no measure for such things.
For this all Nature slows and sings.
Elizabeth Jennings

Love's Philosophy
The fountains mingle with the river,
and the rivers with the ocean;
the winds of heaven mix forever
with a sweet emotion;
nothing in the world is single;
all things, by a law divine,
in one another's being mingle -
why not I with thine?
Percy Bysshe Shelley

(from) Hamlet
Doubt that the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
William Shakespeare

Good Times, Bad Times
Many broken pieces
shattered, now apart.
What can I do to mend it?
To mend by broken heart?

I walk along the beach,
leaving footprints cold and bare.
How can I enjoy the sunset,
when thereís no one here to share?

There used to be a pair,
of footprints next to mine.
But they washed away with waves
and the shifting sands of time.

All I can do now,
is remember how things were.
The good times, not the bad times,
which caused my heart to stir.

To live to die,
What does it matter,
while I am in this state?
I didnít know how much I loved,
until it was too late.

What You Are To Me
A quick glance, a tender smile,
I am caught in a spell.
A gentle touch, a warm embrace,
I know that all too well.

A soft voice, an unspoken love,
across the way I see.
A kind face, an inner beauty,
that's what you are to me.
Ruth M. Ross

A heart of gold will never rust,
it is too precious and too fine.
Those who know it, think it to be
sweeter than the sweetest wine.

More valuable than any treasure,
shining brighter than anything known.
Its love is stronger than any weapon,
those who know it are never alone.

Nothing else like it on this earth
hearts of brass and silver cannot compare
to the beauty and warmth it offers each day,
and with it my soul shall never be bare.
Ellen Strauss

(from) Thine Am I
Take away these rosy lips,
rich with balmy treasure!
Turn away thine eyes of love,
lest I die with pleasure!

What is life when wanting love?
Night without a morning!
Love's the cloudless summer sun,
nature gay adorning.
Robert Burns
