Love’s Fire

love and its mysterious way of causing heat.

Early love sets a-fire

Beauty and affection is all it desires

Happy songs sing while wedding bells ring

Next thing you know “shush! The baby’s sleeping”

Memories of your life soon spread like wild fire

Causing trouble in the time it acquire

Burning this and burning that, with no actual aspire

Since all your affairs were wrapped in barbwire

But that wasn’t enough to hide the lighter of

All the sinful flames that you had inspire

Because Eddie married May but soon admired

The hips that would sway a girl in the church choir


The End
