This poem is about love

Love comes into my life like a whiff of fresh air
It tickles my soul when I am in despair
Enveloping my being with its warmth
Love holds me in its lap with care
It manifests the hope that keeps me alive
And propels me to the stars where only gods dare
Love appears to me in many persons
Yet embodies the same essence in my every prayer
I love them in the way they most need
Comforting them with the sentiments we share

You are absolutely right. Human beings are connected with each other. Raise someone up and you raise yourself. Put someone down and you put yourself down.LOL

Thanks for the sentiments. Your thoughts about love are beautifully expressed in your poem "The love of a Poet". The poet expresses his love like any lover. And the girl in your poem is a real heart breaker. This is the tragedy and comedy of love.A time comes when love takes many forms. It is like the picture you see in my portfolio. The little boy in the picture is not me but my grand son. But I identify myself by him. He is the child in me. That is love.
