For Eternity and More


It happened without warning...
I didn't have a clue...
no hint or intimation...
the arrival, yet on que.
there was no invitation.
at least, none, I can recall...
I never even dreamed of
any writing on my wall...
unannounced and unexpected
came your knock upon my door
to alter my reality
for eternity and more.

I heard your softest knocking
like a whisper or a sigh.
could not, yet, imagine
who would dare to come or why.
I held no grand illusions,
had resigned my heart to fate.
sweetest love had passed me by
and I had ceased to wait.
Though saddened by this lonely fact,
that knocking at my door
would alter my reality
for eternity and more.

Yes, it happened without warning...
I just didn't have a clue...
had never even fathomed that
my dream could, yet come true.
There standing on my threshold...
with a burning rose in hand
love has come to visit.
still not sure I understand.
I can not, yet, explain it but
your knock upon my door
has altered my reality
for eternity and more.

The man on the white horse

is the lady's fantasy no more

No, he's a new modern man

With less brawn, show's up at the door

With a rose in hand,to melt your heart

Oh success, someone you truly can adore

I just love your lyrical comment! Alas, although it is true my reality has been altered for eternity and was by an angel from another realm...not a man on a horse...but its a nice thought! Thanks! Your comment made me smile!

Dearest Janet, I am both humbled and embarrased to read your comment for your presence here I don't deserve. I have gone into hiding, and you found me and now I guess "I'm IT"!Your loyalty touches my soul, Girl, as I hang my head in shame.

This is a beautiful poem. I imagine there are several others who have went through this same feeling without the words to describe it. You have given a voice to those without with your writing.
