Love in the beginning:
Restless, invasive musings of the mind
With trysts that stand the test of time
Secret rendezvous’ delightfully desired
Secret moments diligently conspired
One doth reason - hath love a season?
Love in a small town:
They were ideally matched, blended in tan
The bronzed lady with her handsome man
He the town hero – Her family ill fated
Ravaged by gossip but never deflated
Love resides – where twin souls collide.
Love in full flight:
An indefinable attraction of the mind,
A bolt of lightning, a target to find,
A quicksilver dance of pure delight,
Illuminating skies with iridescent flight,
Then striking with force – to shatter the course.
Loving you now might bring no tomorrows
God’s eternal schemes take away the sorrows
Each path we walk is just another phase
To learn some more, in the never ending maze
Until we meet again – on a Higher Plain.
The world is her oyster; she’ll travel many lands
Over the seas, through mounds of shifting sands
Where love is but a word and life an open door
Forever surging forward, never if – or before
Can she be remiss - and give love a miss?
I don’t think so – Love will always reign.
