Dearly Belovéd (poem)

Dearly belovéd an etching on tree

A soft souvenir of what used to be

A couple in love their moment in bliss

Forever in time their heartbeats to see

-

Was it a teardrop or was it a kiss

That inscribed for all a message as this

Maybe its meaning is drifting in night

A song in the wind the moon wouldn’t miss

-

Whatever its birth it whatever its light

Alive is its flame to make dreams ignite

To feel what it means through love we have bred

And there in our soul awaken its might

-

Dearly belovéd now etched in our head

Our reason its toy what truth does it shed

What is its secret we can’t turn away

Why are we here held by its tender thread

-

Dearly belovéd what does it convey

Dearly belovéd that moves us this way

Dearly belovéd runs loose in our mind

Dearly belovéd it now is this day

-

And then in that pause in love oh so kind

When streams of passion are mists set behind

Dearly belovéd was our memory

That some tomorrow true lovers will find

Dearly beloved has captured the essence of love that was fleeting at once in my lifetime but not really so fleeting. And the guitar serenade was intoxicating. This was AMAZING. voted up up and away....ps
