Take Time To Love

Take time to love

And you will find

Your beating heart

Your frantic mind

Can rest awhile

Can hold until

Your fears subside

Your yearnings still

Take time to love

Take time to love

Despite the pain

Of cutting words

Of cold disdain

When re-applied

Love’s poultice heals

The need to hide

Spite’s cruel wheals

Take time to love

Take time to love

Though not returned

Your hug despised

Emotions spurned

While coldness breathes

Its icy blast

And patient hope

Is dwindling fast

Take time to love

Take time to love

For that one day

The armoured shell

Dissolves, gives way

And mutual

A smile returns

Then briefly

Light and life returns

Take time to love
