A Diatelle ~ love poem ~ 2nd place contest winner

A chapter in the book Either It's Love or It Isn't

Pathway to Contentment

by BeasPeas

'Either It's Love or It Isn't ~ #60-400-B-C
each day
on pathway
to contentment.
Travel with whom you may.
Time shared together is well spent.
Journey becomes lighter, the miles relent.
In comfort and friendship, one another depend.
Clouds lift, blue skies clear, no need for lament.
When words softly spoken are meant,
struggles give way to play,
not resentment.
Free from fray,
don't stray.
