Living With Love

For Musical Notes Prompt #12

Living With Love

If we lay love to rest,
set it aside because it is too
heavy to carry, we may never
stand up to the test
to live our lives with love.

When we live with love,
then we give love
to one and all,
no matter who, or what,
they have or have not done.

There is a reason why
love only lives inside
a beating heart, allowing
each moment to become
that choice to live with love.

Elizabeth Crawford  10/25/12

Today’s inspiration is All For Love by Bryan Adams

    Each beat, that choice to accept what is good, and the best being love.

    Beautiful, Elizabeth, both thoughts and philosophy. That is the journey, learning to live with love, and an open heart. Not as easy as it sounds:)

    Thank you Sherry, nothing of real lasting value is ever easy, yes?
