In the garden of our hearts,
Our love took seed.


And with its birth,
filled every need.


The flower of our love grew in time,
I became yours, and you became mine.


Assailed it was, by winds and drought,
But of its strength there is no doubt.


Its blossoms have bloomed with beauty untold,
It is there for all to behold.


A secret this flower of love does hide,
hidden away, deep inside.


And that is its power, latent and strong,
“forever” is its answer when asked, “how long?”

This poem brings my husband and his love back to me. He died on Aug 17 07 and is truly missed each day. I know I will meet him again some day in heaven. He truly loved colors and things and guess he is enjoying them up there now very much so. Lois

Simple and elegant, much like a flower. Just lovely.

How beautifully put!
Reviewed by Jay Squires
A well-crafted and deeply felt piece. You don't skip along the surface of Love, you submerge and come up with its essence. Your last two lines are a couplet worthy of Alexander Pope. It is a handle to carry the rest of the poem in one's mind. Marvelous!

Beautiful picture and such beautiful heartfelt words. The words just sing.

Reviewed by Linda Alexander
Doug: Very beautiful, heartfelt. And touching.

Where'd the picture come from? Did you take it?

You are obviously a talented wordsmith that writes from the heart. Thanks for the invite.... as usual, it was time VERY well spent.

I love those kinds of secrets.... thank you for sharing such romantic words....

Whoa, had no idea you were such a romantic my friend! Such a good poem! The picture is the perfect background setting for words that flow so smoothly. Can't wait to see what you come up with next. Excellent work my freind.

<gasp and claps!!> That's so precious, Doug! I love it. I love the effects of the bold italics on, 'forever'. That's sooo wonderful. Nice poem. Refreshing.
