The Land Of Love


it can be found in the swirling mist
that surrounds it day and night.
an elusive emotion that starts with a kiss
and ends with the joy of the heart's delight.

it can be found where sunshine smiles
found in moon glow from above.
it can be found in the simplest of things
we are all searching for "The land of love."

The land of love, a place of dreams
a place of happiness and joyous devotion.
but one must not venture there alone
must not seek love, lacking emotion.

It is a land that welcomes all
a land where dreams abide.
the land of love, where I would go
with someone special by my side.

come, my friend, and walk with me
toward the land of love and then,
take my hand through eternity
where hope and dreams need never end.

we went together through the mist
and felt that we would forever stay.
in that place of sweet emotion
we found the land of love that day!
