All it takes is some faith..

Something i had read in a Cyrus Merchant article years ago and still remember. For the person who wrote this, whoever you are, thank you.

Untitled - Anon

Some say love is a river,
That drowns the tender reed,
Some say love is the razor,
That leaves the heart to bleed..
Some say love is a hunger,
An aching endless need
I, say love is a flower,
And YOU its only seed.
Its the dream afraid of waking,
That never takes a chance,
It’s the heart afraid of breaking,
That never learns to dance,
The one who can’t be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
The soul afraid of dying,
That never learns to live.
When you’ve grown too weary and the road seems too long,
And you begin to think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Remember – that in the winter, far beneath the winter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the suns help
in the summer, Becomes the Rose

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right ? I guess it makes sense with love too. It's easy to not fall in love for fear of failure or heartbreak. The real test is when you put your chips back on the table, even after losing a hand.

:)
Glad to see you're back.

Serendipty, this is PINAYSIDE UP. Just read your comment on my blog. Thank you so much! Am trying to squeeze in the writing between running two businesses and building a few more this year. Granted, they are all SME's (small to medium sized enterprises), it is still time consuming. It makes me smile that I have a bigger audience than my friends whom I constantly impose my blog on......PINAYSIDEUP
