Come Sit By Me A While: The Ladder Of True Love.

Source
Source

Thank you for joining me this week again;today's subject is 'true love'.How many out there feel that true love has passed them by for one reason or another!!!

Very many is more than likely the answer to this!!!

There was one lady( mentioning no names!!!) who after leaving her abusive marriage of 26 years was in no hurry to start another relationship ;actually I think that at some point this lady said "I will never ever have a relationship again!!" She was just so happy and fulfilled to be free of those heavy chains!!

However after being on her own for about four years she met a gentleman and she so enjoyed his company. As days turned into weeks she realised that she knew more about him in such a short time than she had ever known of her ex husband.

Weeks turned to months and a close friendship turned into a love story .Today she has found her best friend; her soul mate and her all ; she had never believed that such great happiness existed!!!

Their love grows and strengthens into a beautiful and magical story of true love!!!

So what about it !! Be brave and step onto that first rung of the ladder of true love!!!You never know and I can assure when you find your true love every step on every rung of that ladder will be well worth it.

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Eddy.

The Ladder Of True Love
The Ladder Of True Love | Source

Acrostic:The Ladder Of True Love.

The ladder of true love

Hardly daring to approach

Everytime so overcome by fear of rejection

x

Love so needed but so afraid

Always doubts amalgamate

Dare I

Dare I unlock my heart

Each day yearning swelling

Reaching emotions of wondrous heights

x

Oh yes my heart reaches out

Fear slowly subsiding

x

Trembling on that first rung

Rainbows almost shyly appear

Under the care of mother nature

Every rung a little nearer

x

Love tasted and treasured

Oh how my heart blossoms

Venting emotions so new

Eternally grateful;golden days cherished

Haiku:Love On Angel Wings.

Love on angel wings

Carried to wondrous heights

Each gentle flutter.

Freeverse:True Love.

On the very first rung

heart still bruised

battered and torn................


On the second rung

reaching a little further

senses awakening.......................


On the third rung

hope came a-knocking

faith awakening...........


On the fourth rung

trust strengthening

new thoughts slowly swelling........


On the fifth rung

heart beating faster

happiness eagerly arriving......


On the sixth rung

sunshine beaming

almost caressing...........


On the seventh rung

I grasp true love

which was always meant to be mine........


On the eighth rung

life's rainbow colouring

my once sad grey bleak heart...............


On the ninth rung

I am victorious

demons shattered

into a thousand pieces ..............


The very last rung

I am the Queen of my throne

I climbed each rung slowly but surely

each step strengthening my spirit

opening my heart............


Today I embrace what was always

truly mine!!

Follow me as I give you my hand

Let your world be your very own paradise of love!!!

Rictameter:True Love.

True love

Oh so precious

Filled with such tenderness

Caressed by my spirit's wisdom

From deep in my heart each enchantment swells

Soft whispers from the fairy glen

Wrote that tender love song

So beautiful

True love.

There is always hope. It is said that sometimes we stay watching the door that was closed and we do not perceive the next being open. Very inspiring article!

True love is so important and we are truly blessed when we find it. I love the image of the ladder and the great variety of poetry styles, dear Eddy. As always, a wonderful hub.


lovedoctor926 4 years ago

You're a true poet at heart.. Fears & doubts stop a relationship before it even has the chance to blossom and you have portrayed this very well in the ladder of true love. I agree with Karn. Those fears need to be overcome in order to be able to embrace love. voted up!

How appropos that you chose the theme from 'Love Story' to accompany this hub. I have (momentarily) given up on love. Not forever, but for now. I no longer seek. It will find me if it's meant to be.

Ironically, Love Story is one of two songs I can still play on the piano from the memories of an 8 year old girl. The other is Beetovan's 'Fur Elise'.
