Looking for Love

September 27, 2012

This poem came about after having a meeting in Manhattan with a company that wanted to use our marketing services.  But, the offer wasn’t satisfactory and subsequently in my mind I was thinking did I just waste my time but, you know that’s part of the business.  And then about one block away I went into a café for coffee (just a small cup) usually I would have it black no sugar no milk but, in this occasion I made it sweet with no milk — And on my way home going in and out of traffic these lines came to me…


I’m looking for love

I mean, I’m looking for love,

Not the infatuation you know.

I mean, I’m looking for love.  The kind,

That when you see me you smile,

The feelings that you cannot explain,

 I mean, I’m looking for love.

  How can I find this love? This love,

 The one, that we can hold hands and look at the stars.

  I mean, I’m looking for love,

The one that we would fight for everyday,

  I mean, I’m looking for love,

The one that we would budget for

 To keep the fire burning

I mean, I’m looking for love,

The one that I can be the eagle in the sky without any doubts of my return,

Do you understand what I mean?

Do you really!

The love that has neither a face nor a religion,

 For I know you will protect me with my eyes closed.

I am talking about the love that we can communicate,

Yes, the one that we can share our dreams,

And everything else,

The platform that no one else can reach

The joy people wish that they could have

The comfort that exist,

The love that it’s your birthday every day,

The one that it’s your valentine every day,

The kind that we cherish with a hug,

The love that we punctuate with a kiss,

So I wait, to find this love.

    Sitting at my computer desk finding myself intrigued and fascinated
    by your thought’s and writing skills.I said to myself, how can anyone
    with such deep thought’s be able to manoeuvre his way in and out of
    traffic especially in New York city. For sure deserves my full attention
    to find out more about looking for love. I’m not one who indulge’s herself
    in someone else’s personal thought’s, but for some reason you arouse
    my curiosity to keep on reading your blog. As I kept on reading, It reminded
    me of a conversation I had recently, over dinner with friends at a lovely
    restaurant down town montreal. Subsequently a lot of mixed emotions
    came out of it. From a womans point a view that’s when I finally got it:
    Most men claim to desire driven, confident and independent women.
    Yet when confronted with such women, they become insecure and
    hostile. But I say the heart wants what the heart wants. But in the end
    the heart decides its true destiny.
