Endless Love (poem)

He still can feel that day of endless why

Confusion tore apart the world he knew

And never had he faced something so true

Than when he kissed his lover last goodbye


Those plans of long ago are sadly through

Now lost in endless rivers he did cry

And to his pain his sorrow would reply

Was this the promise that true love was due


Without his reason is his purpose bare

What use is sun for one cast into night

His thought of any future had turned grim


And then a scent familiar filled the air

The flowers’ glow affirmed his heart was right

His lover had returned to be with him

Well spun. I am reading these essays about sonnets and it is amazing how the first eight line bring power to the turn around six. Well done and amazing. Jamie

Whew!!! Mh, this is a most incredibly powerful sonnet ---endless love. When I was a teenager, it is so strange, I wrote a sonnet with the same title, well mine was "My Endless Love." I am thrilled she returned to him, why wouldn't she! That video is one I will have to return to time and time again, I must confess----whoa. It just draws one in, may have to put a rating on it. Ha. This is my newest love of your work dear one. I've noticed there sure are a lot of hubs about love being written here lately in HP land. This is a must share! Voted Way Up, except funny. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
