Respect is not given, its earned

Wisdom is in living, not learned


Love is not simple, its deep

Promise is in words, we keep


Heart is not about try, succeed

Want is but a wish, not need


Pain is not forever, it fades

Forever is in friends, we made


Hopes is not lost, it lasts

Time is in the now, just past


Brother is in bond, not vein

Knowing is in heart, not brain


Sad is not great weight, if shared

Charity is in people, who cared


Life is not paved road, hold tight

Character is in choice, choose right

        Oh thank you kind sir! You are so welcome. It is an honor to read your wonderful work. The weather has been insane here. New Year’s Day it was 78 degrees and two days later it was snowing. Talk about global warming. Hope you are having a great 2022 so far. Still praying for that special lady to show up when you least suspect it. Love Jonikins ❤️🤗🦋🥰
