PERHAPS LOVE

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in these time of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants you to show you more
and even when you lose yourself
And dont know what to do
The memory of love will see you throught

Oh, love to some is like cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way of feel
And some say love holding on
And some say letting go
And some love is evrything
And some say that they dont know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict full of pain
Like a fire when its cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say that they dont know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict full of pain
Like a fire when its cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come treu
My memories of love will be of you

At this time we don’t know all of the ways to combat brain dysfunctions but there are some things that y … Read More

…and/or do we remain their children forever Contributing factors are varied.  Let's look at the "children forever" part first: Back to Childhood: To help parents age well we need to keep in mind: "People change–not much."  I've often repeated this quote from the former head of human resources for a highly regarded Fortune 500 company.
