For You Know…

.
.
We embark upon this life
Go through the stress and strife;
We fall in queue for our brief time here
For no matter how long we last,
It won’t be as long as our past
And it’s all but a token homage my dear

For this gem of a love
Above all others love
Yet we know nothing’s perfect and only God is truly divine
Some say love is just a sell
That heaven is as well
But I know both are real when your hand is holding mine

For you know, I give all of my love to you
From now until our time on earth is through
Because I know you give all of your love to me
And that’s all there ever needs to be
That’s all there ever needs to be

Some days are just hell for us,
Some days all we do is fuss
Some days we cook, other days we freeze
Some days we can’t do without
Some days all we do is pout
Some days we’re brought right down to our knees

Some in big mansions live,
Some inside hovels give
Their all in all to get through the day
Some love’s an orchard to share
Some love’s a cupboard bare
But our love’s beyond what mere words can say

For you know, I give all of my love to you
From now until our time on earth is through
And I know you give all of your love to me
And that’s all there ever needs to be
That’s all there ever needs to be

What I believe is this
We’re touched with heaven’s bliss
Living day by day in this Fool’s Paradise
This love’s where we live and die
This love between you I
At the end of day that’s enough to suffice

Sometimes it’s a slippery slope
Sometimes we can barely cope
But to know these joys we’ll risk pain’s chance
Day by day we grow old,
Others rust, we stay gold
Two left footed steppers in an intricate dance

For you know, I give all of my love to you
From now until our time on earth is through
For I know you give all of your love to me
And that’s all there ever needs to be
That’s all there ever needs to be

  1. Day by day we grow old,
    Others rust, we stay gold…..nice… and you know…i could literally hear this…and see…. in a bar..muted light… late already…few people on the chair and a guitar, piano, drum, you on the mic in an evening dress and he sits on one of the tables, glass of wine in front of him… looks..listens..and just smiles

  2. I like how you describe the challenges people in love have to face from time to time. It is nice when “This love between you I / At the end of day that’s enough to suffice”

  3. Maintaining Love is our most important duty, our job-apex, for it does need maintenance & nurturing & reinforcement & reciprocity & romance; & you seem to be just the gal poet to get ‘er done; nice job (& like me, you tend to be long-winded never short of breath or words, right?)

  4. I was singing along with you ~ I specially like these lines:

    Day by day we grow old,
    Others rust, we stay gold
    Two left footed steppers in an intricate dance

    Enjoyed this love song ~

  5. I liked those same lines as the others…day by day we grow old, others rust, we stay gold, two left footed steppers in an intricate dance. And agree with Mary…no romanticizing the partnership…sometimes it can be downright gritty!

So? What do you think?
