This is a poem of mistakes made, merging with hope for renewal

Love’s Renewal

Honey, I know I've lost your trust

And there's nothing I can do

To convince you of my undying love

After all that we've been through

Honey, if I could begin again, I would

And try harder to do the things I should

I yearn to see the love light in your eyes

As you release, and forgive all the lies

We've been together for so very long

The ties that bound us held strong

With the blind trust, so long gone

I can't fix all that went so wrong

Honey, let's pretend that we just met

Rebuild our love, our passion, step-by-step

And as we share the last years left

Let our love, our vows, be kept

All the past hurts waft away

As we greet each brand-new day

We are no longer who we were

As new love and passion come our way

We grasp it with newfound glee

Our souls melded as once before

The past is past — so let there be

A future bright as our hearts soar

"The past is past - so let there be." Step by step, with God's help love can be rebuilt! Well written, Micki!

I love this piece, Micki.

I'm looking at it from the viewpoint of one who has been married to the same woman for over 61 years. I know that to succeed in an enduring love takes not only dedication and commitment but trust, understanding and forgiveness.

None of us is perfect, and that includes your spouse that at one time in your infatuation stage you thought approached "perfect." But if we trust our own feelings and judgment, then we shouldn't second-guess our prior judgment in choosing a mate at a time when a personal challenge arises and you discover (again) that your mate isn't perfect either.

If you harbor the concept of "growing old together"--which I highly recommend because I've lived it--then you must live by the lesson taught in your "Love's Renewal."

You know and understand and have lived drama and personal challenges. Your "Love's Renewal" allows us a unique opportunity to learn by someone's life-changing experience.

Thank you for sharing, Dear Heart. This work is a treasure.

I love the flow of this, Micki... ...and the theme is completely "up my alley" except that, in my case, I really did nothing to bring on the "rift." Anyway, I can relate and thus your verses speak right to my soul. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,

If we could pretend we had just met the one that got away, how divine life would be.

Your poem resonates with forgiveness and making amends. However, lies are lies and create great distrust that can never be forgotten.

It's hard to let a liar back into one's heart. Wouldn't you agree?

I've missed your poetry. Nice rekindling of poetic thoughts, Micki...this line resonates with me. I've changed, and am no longer who I was.

"We are no longer who we were"

Kindred & Whippoorwill blessings,

Micki welcome back! You wrote a very convincing poetic piece. It sings to me like a county love song. Well done!
