Love Is Important

Love is so important

in everything we do.

Love brings out the very best

in every point of view.


It's easier to be loving

than to hold on to a grudge.

We get stuck in negativity

and our ego will not budge!


Experiences, good and bad,

will always come and go,

being able to love regardless

is how our spirits grow.


Love works in mysterious ways

to soften any concern.

Giving love away freely

reaps loving rewards in return.


How wonderful and magical

we feel when we're in love.

We truly are on top of our world - 

there's nothing we can't rise above!


Let's turn all negative thinking

into positive, loving thought

by spreading love, joy and peace

as, for thousands of years, we've been taught.


- Jean Kay
