Love is not just a feeling its also how you show it-?
A honest answer is like a kiss on the lips-Proverbs 24,26

I knew a girl who smoked
She wanted to be cool
When she lit up her first cigarette
We knew she was a fool

Day after day
Her addiction grew stronger
Cigarette after cigarette
She started smoking much longer

By the time she was 40
She got very ill
When she heard the bad news
She had no choice but to write her will

When she looked back on her life
She got really upset
Because that she was sick
She had to finish her life with regret

As she lay in her hospital bed
The machine went
beep_ _ _ beep_ _ _ _ _ beeeeeep____________
Then her eyes shut
She gently and quietly fell asleep

Live Life Like A Party That Never Ends

This is a really powerful poem. People don't realize how many this happens and how the things we do now while we are young have repercussions that may affect us later on...or at least that's what my mom tells me. Anyways, nice poem! I really liked it :)
