If Love Was Everything We Owned…

If love was everything we owned
I’d buy you clouds and beams of sun
A house where only laughter’s heard
A field where there was room to run

But worries crowd and pressures mount
And hearts once burning turn to smoke
If only love was all we owned
Then I could fix the things
I broke

  1. Aww..
    You know as I read that last line, the thought that popped up was something a friend posted on FB. It told of the old Japanese saying/tradition..when a vase broke..they would fix it with gold. Because they saw the beauty and the value of those “scars”…I’m not saying it correctly..lol..but it’s some where out there in Google land..hehe.

      1. Ooo really? That’s so cool. I’ve never been to Japan…I think the only real “exposure” to Japan for me was reading Shogun, watching the Last Samurai and reading that book…about the geisha…I can’t remember the name..lol. But..for some reason, their culture and traditions fascinate me..it’s weird.

        1. Most of the people I know never want to leave once they go.

          I find Japanese culture to be both beautiful and intimidating, because I’m kind of the loner type. One of their sayings is “The nail that sticks up gets hammered down.” In other words, don’t stand out too much.

          I’m not sure I’d survive there. But it is an amazingly hospitable place, at least, where I’ve been. My parents lived there for three years, before I was born, and they always loved it.

          1. Oh nice! You should write about it..so lazy people like me can just read your blog about the Japanese culture instead of ..you know..Googling..ehehehe. Also, it is always good to get different perspectives of something, wouldn’t you say? hehe
