How Do You Show Love

Submitted:June 21, 2003


Written when I was almost in tears waiting to be loved; simply begging for someone who took an interest in me, who cared for the strange person I was, and would be interested in finding out more about me.


I've discovered that someone who fits perfectly with me is incredibly hard to find, but also realized that if I wanted to find them, they would be looking for someone who would care for them.


Thus, the conclusion to my turmoil, and the production of the poem.




How do you show Love

When you care for someone so much

How can you think straight

When they love you just as much


How can you feel cold

With so much warmth inside

How can you feel alone

When someone is always by your side


How can you feel stress

With someone to calm your fears

How can you be frightened of growing old

With someone who is there for years


How can you be silent

When everything in you shouts with gladness

How can feel sorrow

With someone who dries every sadness


How can you cry

When the tears won\'t come

How can you wear anything but a smile

When happiness from them comes


* * * * *


So how can anyone be sad

If you do the same

How can anyone not know where to go

When it begins to rain


How can anyone feel alone

If you are their friend

How can anyone feel frustrated

When you\'re with them to the end


How can anyone feel left out

If you always include them in

How can anyone not care

When you care so deep within


How can you refuse

The greatest tool from above

How is it possible

Not to show love?
