A Love That Still Shines

Come take my hand

and let me lead you

through the years we’ve shared

let me know the love is still there


sitting side by side

in golden silence

my hand in yours

like a little bird trembles


I try to pick up your thoughts

but they’re not with me

my heart feels a chill

that seems to be all around


can you tell me

that our love can survive

when each day

we seem to no longer have something to say


where have the smiles

of yesterday gone

the days of you and I

and sweet memorable kisses


your eyes still sparkle and shine

but does that mean you are still mine

have I lost your heart

perhaps in another place and time


we still dance beneath the moon and the stars

only now when you hold me

it no longer feels the same

tell me you love me along with my name


in dreams I see us as we were

so full of hope, so full of love

together we were as one

and so much in love


seeking comfort I sifted through the memories

so many pictures

that told the story as it should be

the two of us through eternity


then there you were

your arms full of roses

a single rose for each year of our love

and one for the next shining one


it was then that I realized

our love was very much alive

the passion of your kisses

and complete devotion in the starry night

This lovely poem reminds me to never take love for granted. It is, after all, the most important thing in life.

Glad you enjoyed this Venkatachari.

Thank you Smilealot.

So true Bill. Love is most important and it can still be true even if we doubt. The important thing is what is in our hearts.

Rasma, when the light is still seen in the eyes, that light is fueled by love. Couples who stand the test of time lose some of the giddiness, but a tremendous comfort ensues in its place.

When love is no longer a trial, it becomes real and lasts forever.

This poem epitomizes true love.

As time passes and life becomes busy sometimes we take each other for granted and then wonder if the love is there still. Love your poem, especially the happy ending.
