MANY A MOON

The tears I shed for lost balloons
and bursting bubbles soon were dried ...
my sobbing pleas for silvery moons
with lesser gifts were satisfied ...

Many a reach has failed its mark
since then and many a moon has waned ...
but love I cried for in the dark
came to bless me and remained.

  2. Margie...

    this is one of my favorite poems you've ever shared ... so much symbolism and so many images that grip me here, making me wander into my memories and just... stop and feel..

  15. Margie, that sort of love is rare and special. So beautiful! It's lovely, when you miss your mark, to have a safe and soft spot to land.

    Did you see the full moon the other night? Here it was exactly that - silvery.

  17. What are balloons, even "silvery moons" or other fancy gifts, compared to Love? Love that comes to bless and stays.

    Charming little love poem!
