I wrote this several years ago…thought it was worth a reblog. Happy Valentines’s Day to everyone!
Sweet Thoughts…Precious Memories…Undying Love How many of you have ever felt this way?
You have been mine before;
I remember the taste of your tender kisses,
The warmth of your welcoming embrace,
A smile that lit up my lonely world;
That playful way you stirred my passion,
Feeling lost forever, lying in your arms,
Somewhere long ago.
You’re the one I want to be with;
I love you with all that I am.
You are the precious air I breathe,
A character in every dream I cherish,
That missing part of me that I see,
Looking deeply into your eyes.
I recently came across this poem I wrote in 1985 when I was cleaning out a closet today. I hope you enjoy it.
“True love does not seek its own reward; its worth, its dignity, is entrenched within its own existence; it breathes with soft sounds and lives in tender thoughts that touch the soul.
True love understands unspoken utterances; its beauty, its expression, is seen within the gentleness of the eyes; it whispers ‘always’ and never speaks the word ‘impossible’.
True love believes, when faith dares to falter; its trust, its devotion, abides in childlike innocence spotted by reality’s harshness; it feels the deepest depths of vulnerability and knows this to be the secret of its strength.
True love cries silently the tears of the beloved; its pain, its sorrow, is shared sacredly within the heart’s deepest chambers; it enjoys contentment when peace abounds and smiles when it hears the words ‘I love you’. “
