Illusions of Life


As in this awesome picture above
life has many illusions.
What is real and what is not
must be of our own conclusion

The Words of love spoken so freely
lightly and profoundly touch the heart.
Are words etched forever
that must last long beyond the start.

With all in Love and Life
there is no " just kinda"
It must be commitment given
with no hidden agenda

The cards are on the table
no hidden truths allowed
the heart must be open and free
not hidden by a black shroud

I believe that marriage
is forever and a day.
That from my heart and life
they can never stray.

The illusions of love and life
oh how does one determine?
To leave that zone of safe
Is it worth the chance taken?

My heart is full
and not all is pain.
Is it but an illusional wish
to love and laugh again?

Oh to dance among the stars
in the arms of the one I love.
Would be a prayer answered
by my loving Father above.

So above as you alone can do
determine if this is but a she
or just the cold harsh truth
of your life's reality tree.

So true, Donna; but sadly, rarely adhered to in this world/life. Thank you. Love and my very best wishes,
