Welcome:

In this latest edition of Poems From the Jersey Shore I decided to put together some of the poems I’ve written dealing with love. All of these poems were written from little bit and quips which popped into my head. I guess you could say all the prompts for the poems came from stuff which happen each day in our lives.

Love is all around us all you have to do is take the time to put your heart out there and see what returns. I hope you like enjoy reading them and they encourage you to go out and love more each day.

"Where there is love there is life."

–Mahatma Gandhi

The Kinda Love

They say that

For love to be strong,

For love to be true

The love must be

At the heart of you

Then and only then

Will your love be

The kinda love that

Lasts for all eternity


I’m glad i know

The kinda love

That shines through

My hopes, my dreams,

My tears too

The kinda love

That makes friendships

Endure the test of years

The kinda love

That calms the storm

Quiets all my fears

The kinda love

that can be shared

With everyone i meet

Don’t want to hold anything back

I want everyone to se e

The kinda love

That i have for jesus

Sometimes love is as tasty as ice cream.

Sometimes love is as tasty as ice cream.

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss

I Adore You

What do I deserve from you

Yet you reserve a place for me

We will live together forever

My life is already borrowed from you

In a place where death has no sting

I am so glad I met you


I adore you

I adore you

The one to whom I’ve

Given my love


I took my live and gave

It to you

I had nothing else to

Offer you

Living has improved cause

I know you


I adore you

I adore you

The one to whom i’ve

Given my love


In all those times when

A lover gets a broken heart

I hope I will never break yours

Not me, through you my life


Was truly blessed

I adore you

I adore you

The one to whom i’ve

Given my love

Must be at the heart of you

“Love is the strange bewilderment which overtakes one person on account of another person.” – James Thurber

Secondhand Emotion

Well, i don’t get it

Yeah, i just don’t get it

I don’t get the notion

Why people call love

A secondhand emotion

It’s not hard to tell

What love’s all about

Wonder if they know

I have my doubts


All i know is

When love settles in

When love settles in

When love settles in

Your heart

It’s not secondhand

It’s the first time

Right from the start

The first time

Not a second hand try

The first time, the first time

All else is left behind

Yeah! All else is left behind


Shake my head and wonder

Where people get the notion

Love is a second hand emotion

Wonder if they know

I have my doubts

Hopefully someday they’ll know

What love is all about

All about

”A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.” – Kurt Vonnegut

Love Binds Us

Love binds us as one

Deep within our hearts

What love joins together

Can never be torn apart

Once separate

Our lives are now set

On a new course

For richer or poorer

Better or worse

Traveling together

Down the river of life

The happiest times will be

When you’re by my side


We’re 2 into 1

We’re 2 into 1

What freinship has

Bound in the heart

Can’t be undone

It is a knot tied tight

That won’t slip

Outta our sight

We’re 2 into 1

We’re 2 into 1


We’re friends forever

Even death won’t tear us apart

Cause of the love we have for god

And each other

Deep within our hearts

So until then we will cherish

Each and every day

Cause we’re friends forever

Nothing can stand in our way

We’ll always be around

To help each other out

When were feelin down

When we’re feel in doubt

We’re friends forever

Be True To Me

Be true to me

I’ll be by your side

Be true to me

My love i will not hide


Remember

If the world should catch your eye

Just look to your heart

You won’t be led wrong

I’ll be there

My love is too strong


Don’t be afraid of loving me

Just have faith you’ll see it’s true

You’ll always be wiht me

And i always will be with you


Be true to me

I’ll be by your side

Be true to me

My love i will not hide

Pastures of Love

I search, I seek

I try to find true love

Even when heartache

Is the pasture I must cross

For love, for true love


I will continue down the road

Past love after love

Because any love

No matter how brief

Might or even be

A field to wonderful to miss


I search, I seek

To try to find true love
