  1. Gentle The Love
    Poet: John McLeod, 1989


    Gentle the love that flows from caring hands,
    Friendship is a flower that grows and understands
    That gentle love will ever light the way
    Towards enchantment's ever brightening day.
    For Love is a song that lights the darkest place
    And shines eternal,
    Blessed with joy and grace!




  2. Where Love Resides….
    Poet: Jaymac, 1989

    Where Love resides
    You'll find the sunlight clear
    Golden and warm
    To guild each passing year

    Where Love resides
    You'll find a rainbow too
    Soft colours that enhance
    And Hope renew

    Where Love resides
    There is no 'Time' as such
    Gentle and true
    Its own eternal touch

    Love has such sunlight
    Where no falsehood hides
    Eternal colours true
    Where Love resides!

  4. Many Kinds Of Love
    Poet: Henry VanDyke

    There are many kinds of love,
    Ss many kinds of light,
    And every kind of love
    Makes a glory in the night.

    There is love that stirs the heart,
    And love that gives it rest,
    But the love that leads life upward
    Is the noblest and the best.



  5. My Life Is Great With You
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    How amazing life can be,
    Especially when I look at thee.
    I sometimes wake up, to contemplate thought,
    Of how this life came to me.

    I am so grateful for all that I have,
    I just find myself wondering out loud.
    But its time that this stops, and I forget these thoughts,
    As these thoughts are no longer allowed.

    What I have is so amazing,
    Doesn't mean I didn't create 'em.
    I am the one who is blessed, and hope for so much more,
    To my life that I hope you'll be in.

    Our life together is wonderful and great,
    And I hope you will always be my mate.
    Yes my life is quite great, but you'll also first rate,
    To me your the reason for fate.



  6. Forever
    Poet: Kate Summers

    I love you to the moon and back
    That is true and that's a fact
    You can never love me more
    Because you I do adore.

    I love you more that is true
    With you I am never blue.
    You love me, I love you
    My dreams you were an answer to.

    Together we face what life will bring
    My love for you is more than a feeling
    It is how I act, what I do
    I will love you forever that is true.



  7. Where Is That Love?
    Poet: John McLeod, 1989

    Where is that love we all search for
    The 'gold' at rainbow's end?
    To walk in dreams that distant shore
    Seeking a timeless Friend. . .
    Beyond the measuring is where
    All Dreams and Hopes reside,
    Across the moments outwith Time
    Joy's river deep and wide.

    Where is that love we all search for
    And see to understand,
    When will we find that secret door
    To Happiness's Land?
    Sudden to find at journey's end
    Within, so clear and true,
    The Love we sough, the gentle Friend
    Awaits for you!



  8. Love Is
    Poet: Edmund Spenser

    Love is life's end; an end but never ending;
    All joys, all sweets, all happiness awarding;
    Love is life's wealth (ne'er spent but ever spending),
    Love's life's reward, rewarded in rewarding:
    Then from thy wretched heart fond care remove.
    Ah! shouldst thou live but once love's sweets to prove,
    Thou wilt not love to live, unless thou live to love.



  9. A Heart For Every One
    Poet: Charles Swain


    Oh, there's a heart for every one.
    If every one could find it;
    Then up and seek, ere youth is gone,
    Whatever the toil, ne'er mind it;
    For if you chance to meet at last
    With that one heart, intended
    To be a blessing unsurpassed,
    Till life itself is ended,
    How would you prize the labor done,
    How grieve if you resigned it
    For there's a heart for every one,
    If every one could find it!

    Two hearts are made, the angels say,
    To suit each other dearly;
    But each one takes a different way, —
    A way not found so clearly!
    Yet though we seek, and seek for years.
    The pains are worth the taking,
    For what the life of home endears
    Like hearts of angel's making?
    Then haste, and guard the treasure now.
    When fondly you've enshrined it.
    For there's a heart for every one,
    If every one could find it.



  10. Life Seems To Thee
    Poet: Charles Fenno Hoffman


    Life seems to thee more earnest, dearest!
    And is it not the same with me?
    Why, sweet, each shadow that thou fearest
    To me becomes reality —
    A thought — a pang to mar my gladness,
    And cloud my brow with tender sadness —
    And all of loving thee!

    The jest from which thou often turnest
    Is only love's fond thoughtful guile,
    And comes from heart in love most earnest
    When it would make thee smile —
    Is but the stream's bright circles breaking
    Beneath thy blessed tear-drops — waking
    Love's dimples there the while.



  11. Reflection
    Poet: J. B. Selkirk


    Within my lady's eyes I find the whole
    Of love's sweet moods reflected perfectly.
    The rapturous rest, the deep felicity,
    That silent sweet serenity of soul
    Love only knows when it has reached its goal.
    With nothing left to think of, hear, or see,
    That does not answer to the master'key,
    Nor falls within love's golden aureole.

    Could anything that heaven itself could give her
    Make those still eyes of hers more heavenly fair?
    Lo I as I look at them, like summer air
    That wakens into flame a sleeping river,
    Laughter has taken them with light so rare
    It would content me well to look for ever.



  12. I Sat With Her Hand In Mind
    Poet: J. B. Selkirk


    I sad with her hand in mine,
    Last night when the sun went down;
    Our hearts were full of love's light divine,
    The light of life and the crown;
    My soul spoke only to hers,
    And the listening heavens above,
    While up through her eyes for ever
    Answered the speechless river
    Of her love.

    No word between us arose -
    Wherefore at all the need?
    For what are words to the heart that knows
    It loves, and is loved indeed?
    But I sware in my heart for her.
    To the listening heavens above.
    While up through her eyes for ever
    Answered the speechless river
    Of her love.
