Heartbeat Reminder (poem)

Each heartbeat a reminder loving you

The reason the sun blessed another day

Just ask the flowers they’ll admit it’s true

A scent that heaven is not far away


Each thought of you awakes a melody

The dance of lover kissed by satin light

Just ask the stars their whispers you will see

The dream-lit path that leads my soul to flight


Each maddened moment that we are apart

A lifetime of surrender to the dark

Just ask a tear the secrets of the heart

The Joys of you forever will remark


Each heartbeat a reminder loving this

Each thought awakes a moment that you kiss

Mh -

The heart trembles at the thought of one so cherished. After 32 years of marriage, reading this is as close as I'll ever get to that again!

Seriously, you really made this one come alive. I felt like a 16 year old experiencing love for the first time. And, you never forget your first!

Great Job, my friend. Completely enjoyed!

MadHatter, beautiful poem exemplifiyng the yearning for love. Please know lost love or looking for love in the wrong places does not diminish the beauty of life. Nor does it diminish the search. Be real. If love doesn't pan out the way you dream, keep dreaming and reaching. If and when you've found it, nurture it! Never let it go stale.

My favorite line is "Just ask a tear the secrets of the heart" I don't know how you come up with phrases like these, but they're wonderful. Voted up.
