Love Poems by rebekahELLE
"Sometimes we just need to sit outdoors and listen closely to heaven... above us, around us, within us. "
I have written my entire life. I have journals, old notebooks, computer files, torn slips of paper with inspiration, poetic utterances scribbled quickly, so as not to forget. I remember one of my first poems written while a young girl. It was titled, "The Horse That Jumped Over The Rainbow." I always knew I wanted to write, and as I grew older, I imagined what it meant to be in love. Was it kind of like the love in fairy tales?
What is love? So many definitions, so many feelings, so many songs and poems are penned, describing this mysterious, elusive, overwhelming, dark, radiant, effusive energy we call love. I share with you two of my poems about love. The first is written as three short, separate poems packaged together as Love, Gift Divine. The second is deeper, asking the reader to ponder the measureless dimensions of love, and its greater purpose in this grand circle of life. Surely, something as enduring as love never dies, so, Where Does Love Go When You Let It Go?
Loves First Breath...
Love, Gift Divine
Loves first breath
his touch doth bring,
to lift the veil
open my world
to a perfect ray of dawn.
Its gentle light
whispers love, gift divine.
Tenderness so soft as the perfect sapling,
pure and sweet to my taste.
Eyes like dark planets,
I become lost in their passion
in this language of love with no words.
Its seed lands gracefully
to sprout and take root
in my deepest heart,
ever growing this eternal blossom
which brings such beauty to my world.
Only one thought of you
brings stillness to my soul.
Your love doth fill my cup,
and runs down my hand
to touch my heart with
this gift of you.
Where Does Love Go When You Let It Go?
This love that we breathed
and let flow through our veins,
does it now fall from the heavens
a pure drop of rain?
Oh, where does it go when you let it
Does it fall upon a blade of grass
spring up as the lovely flower of June?
Does it fill the song of a bird
softly in the night?
Dare I should turn around
expect to catch the last setting shades of the
Echoes heard in the
