Life Hope Love



There is a center of life in the palm of my hand


where I held many dreams


with my fingers recounting everything ever want.


And I see beneath skin in the red of the streams


all the reasons to smile


and the things to revile


for my life I will hold in the palm of my hand.




There is a center of hope in the brown of my eyes


where I saw all my dreams


in the blueness reflected from the wide open skies.


And in freedom I found I could spread open wings


with a reason to fly


or to whittle and die


for my hope I will hold in the brown of my eyes.




There is a center of love in the midst of my heart


where I grew all my dreams


in a heartbeat of lovers that one day broke me apart.


And in loss I found life that was lost in the extremes


with a reason to go


and desire to grow


for the love I will hold in the midst of my heart.

    You can tell when a person has lived by what they write, there is almost texture, a grain to their words, the net is full of noise it’s lovely to come across a song.

    Within our hand and eyes and reserved within our hearts
    Be perhaps not our whole but indeed vivid and vital parts

    Very romantic way is that to describe the love. When you have to say something is easy to share your feelings and the best essay writing services share the very soft feeling of romance. When you touch the body of your love, it is really amazing.

    Without love, the life cannot be spent in the good form. Many guys lose their love and with them, they also lose their hope. But many among them with the bestessays writing service are starting their lives again. And they reported that they live happily without them.
