His Love Is Mine


His love was pure as alpine air

With urgency and passion of gushing rapids

Running wild and free and ever flowing through the gullies of my heart

Immortal as the Gods to whom death is unknown

Meaningful as a first snow flake in the tender hand of a child

Wondrous as that moment when love’s spark ignites


His love was as gentle as Autumn’s morning mist

With a tenderness that only the lucky can fathom

Shrouding my body like a silken veil of loving protection

With a warmth and glow that would shame Summer’s sun


His memory is eternal as the pyramids of Egypt

Standing strong and permanent in reverie of my mind

Never to be forgotten nor faded in time

For he is me and we are one, tho' fate has dealt its blows

But our loving heart is beyond this world and beyond the grave

In which his beloved body is now reposed.

.....I was expecting 'Jesus' because your title seemed to have a religious overtone - but this beautifully realized poem is written in the spirit of that other great Hub poet - Vincent Moore - worthy company indeed - and your exquisite use of alluring imagery confirms you as a writer with such a powerful cinematic vision that 'I see each line in my head' ....... lake erie time 12:30pm

Although your poetry is not religious, it is better, it is spiritual. The flow, the vivid imagery runs like a unforgettable film...worth viewing again and again.

This is a love between to lovers that encompasses all time and eternity. To have found love and hold it as dear to your bosom as you share here is divinity. Love does not stop at death, he awaits you for his love is always yours and immortality will be yours for the sharing.

@ Amy - Thank you dear friend for reading my poem.

@Vincent - thank you for your comment. It's lovely to have you review this (fictional) hub. I wanted to capture the mystery and immortality of love and how it is able to be sustained and transcend different planes of reality without being diminished in form. On the surface where there may be the sad finality of our human life, there still remains hope, in the mysterious continuity of love well beyond our mortal coil.

Wow... this reads like a beautifully crafted romance novel. Their passion is what so many desire to find, and some die never finding it. This is absolutely incredible Maria. And I love that line...with urgency and passion of gushing rapids...

Beautiful! And no sorrow felt. Instead love is rejoiced and remembered as it delved into and became part of the soul. Brilliant! Such a wonderful perspective for those who have lost loved ones. True love does not die!

Amazingly penned!
