LOVE

This week I’m joining The Poetry Pantry week #10, and  Sunday Scribblings for writing prompt #234- LOVE!

Love is .  .  .

The flutter within when you scan the crowd and find his face
The flush on your cheeks at the first “I love you” in a whispered hush
The song that reminds you of that thing you did that time at that place
Long distance conversations deep in the night followed by hurried “hellos” in the morning light

Glances exchanged and eyes that speak “I totally understand”
Code words and secrets made in private shared in public on the sly
A touch that quickens the pulse, even though a decade or more now spans
Wars come and battles rage together side by side and eye to eye

When looks have faded and sight is dim and backs are bent
Solomn vows to God are given, solomn vows to man are kept
No regrets for memories made or some long forgotten youth mispent
Sins, imperfections -no more cute and all the “what if’s” remain unwept

Forgiving, hoping, giving, praying and living together forever
It’s knowing he’s not perfect but making the choice to stay anyway
Even fairy tales have witches and spells and lines not clever
It’s remembering on purpose the happy moments more than the sad
It’s holding one another through good times and not letting go in the bad

  4. Forgiving, hoping, giving, praying and living together forever
    It’s knowing he’s not perfect but making the choice to stay anyway
    Even fairy tales have witches and spells and lines not clever

  6. Ana, I love your words about love. There definitely is a lot of truth here. I like remembering the happy and not the sad!

  7. I especially love the last line…….well done!

  8. I like your line, “Even fairy tales have witches and spells and lines not clever” because we never think of that when we want a fairy tale ending!

  9. “It’s knowing he’s not perfect but making the choice to stay anyway ……………not letting go in the bad”
    …very beautiful poem.
