What is love?

What is love?

It's impossible to explain.

What is love?

I think this question will remain.

What is love?

We ask one another.

What is love?

A little child asked his mother.

It's so simple and hard to understand.

It can be so different.

You can't here pretend.

It can be so sweet

With tender meetings.

It can be bitter

With tears and partings.

It can be so light

Like the brightness of the star

Being so far.

It can be like an apple-tree

In it's blossom time.

It can be a prison,

It can be a chime.

There are so many words for Love

But... to understand it

You just have TO LOVE.

Ah probably not hard exactly, maybe I just need more confidence!!
You asked where I am from, Larisa. I am English, and live in Hertfordshire about 25 miles from London. Love Lynn

Is it so difficult to read out?

Hi Larisa (or Laura?) Just listened and yes, it works for me. I think I would need a lot of practice in reading mine out - I can only write them! Love, Lynn

My dear Lynn! This is my first experience in posting the poem reading it myself. You know what? I've decided to send the rest of my poems with audio. Would you like to listen? With love, Laura
