Everything Changes With Love

The day she met him

Nothing was ever the same

The world looked so very different

Full of new hope and full of love


He soon became the reason

That she awoke in the morning

The reason for her bright smile

And her joy in living


With every heartbeat

She hoped he felt the same

And when she looked into his sparkling eyes

She knew he did


The times they spent together

Where the stuff dreams are made of

Their world was so much brighter

And love gave them wings


There were no gray skies

Only brilliant blue from now on

If raindrops fell

They were like quick silver


Nights of quiet passion

And shared kisses

Words of love

So special and tender


Strolling through the parks

Of the city

She suddenly realized

She had never really heard birds singing


It was the day when hand in hand

They strolled along

The birds sang in chorus

And the sun rays danced


The river flowed along

Reflecting the sun

And ripples like sparkling diamonds

Shone so very clearly


During quiet evening walks

The surrounding city neon lights

Suddenly seemed like colorful lanterns

Floating along in the dark


Their love took them to new heights

Dreams left long behind

Were coming true

The city seemed so magical


Their love like a golden aura

Surrounded them and she smiled

As she heard the birds singing

In the city square


Love can change so very much

And make the world a different place

For those who love

There are rainbows most everywhere


So embrace love with all your mite

Never forget to say I love you

Dancing beneath the moonlight

They sealed it with a kiss feeling so much bliss

Dear Gypsy,

You have captured so beautifully, those changes that happen when we are in love ... we certainly have a different outlook on life and our eyes our open to those things all around us that have been there all along, but when love comes, all of our senses are wide open!

Really enjoyed this beautifully written poem.

Voted up ++++ and away

Blessings always
