An Honest Love Is Beautiful

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






An honest love is beautiful, a grand and perfect gift.
An undisputed thoughtfulness imparts a joy and lift.

An honest love is beautiful, a lithe and supple form.
An undisputed gracefulness sustains a fire and storm.

An honest love is beautiful, a right and sincere case.
An undisputed truthfulness offers a home and base.

An honest love is beautiful, a dear and precious find.
An undisputed faithfulness imbues a heart and mind.

An honest love is beautiful, a warm and tender share.
An undisputed helpfulness reveals an aid and care.

An honest love is beautiful, a calm and gentle clutch.
An undisputed peacefulness unfolds a hug and touch.

An honest love is beautiful, a sole and peerless fond.
An undisputed gratefulness affords a link and bond.
