Love ~

Love
delicate as a slender 
thread of dew
upon the grass ~

lace of cobwebs 
shattered by a broom 
milkweed pods 
that fly before the wind 
rose petals 
falling in a heated room ~

love 
strong as the skein 
that binds my life 
to yours ~

your steady heartbeat 
underneath my head 
my arms to take
your love
and hold it close 
through rides of dreams 
till we as one awake ~

-----------------------------------

 After over thirty years of marriage my love for him
is enduring and more beautiful than it was the day we married.
He makes my heart go pitter patter every day of my life!

  1. My dear Margie, this is the most beautiful poem about love. I never thought about love as delicate as a slender thread of dew. I agree it's very delicate and your comparison is so wonderful!

    And love is strong.... That is so true also.

    Thirty years together that is wonderful!!! Your love became more deep and more beautiful. Margie, I am lucky that I know you. You see always the brightest side of this life and I need it from time to time. Thank you for this beautiful and inspiring poem!!!

    I send you my deep admiration and warm wishes, Margie!

    1. Lorraine , do you remember that song, "what's it all about alfie? "
      You remind me of it, especially these lyrics, "I believe in love alfie, without true love, we don't exist, alfie"
      Just call me ":the love guru" LOL

      You made me smile.

  3. BEAUTIFUL, Margie. You know I've played (violin) at hundreds of weddings, but one I shall never forget. A Priest in his homliy to the newly married couple, said "I pray this is NOT the happiest day of your life. I PRAY THAT FIFTY YEARS from now, you will look at one another and say, "WE HAD NOT A SINGLE CLUE what happiness and love were all about".......

    1. Thank you, Steve.
      Well, it's more than thirty years for me and I can truly say my wedding day was not the happiest day of my life, it was just a prelude of all the happy days to follow.
      I am blessed and I am grateful, so very grateful.
