Labour Of Love
Author: Barbara Goodhew


It is easy to pick something up at the store,
Everyone likes to be remembered.
You get expensive gifts from the wealthy'
Some like to show theirs cost more.
Things made from the heart, have no cost,
But they mean the most.
It's called a labour of love.

I was thinking about what I give for birthday presents is a poem, a card I make up and my family and friends love it. a friend of my daughter got her a nice set of luggage and all I could afford was my card. My daughter said Mom I love it it's worth more than things buy it came from your heart. so I thought of this.

Love don't cost a thing

That's right Barb! Love is not expensive at all; as a matter of fact, love is cheap, and that's a good thing!But the other kind of love that's much cheaper than that; is the betrayal part of love. Lovely poem Barb!
