Love Poems For My Love

A gull, screaming of loneliness
is my love
circling above you

You wash your hair
like drifting red sea-weed
hiding your face

On your bare back, a glowing rock
my lips must trace down drops of sea-water

I need to know the taste
of sea-salt and sun and playful waves

Stop that, you yell at me
You are drinking up the sea

Do not cry that I am drowning
because if I die,
I will die hugging a mermaid

walking in a grassy meadow
in thin, thin summer clothes
scratching your fresh mosquito bites
in lazy reflection
young and so filled
with the memory of love

to catch floating cobwebs
that caress your lips and cheeks
and think a little of rain and wind
maybe waiting for a letter
perhaps thinking of asking for advice
or even wondering if you're still in love

I have thought about you always waiting a long time
I held you so dear, my heart made a secret plan
I felt you were near, your warmth and your light
But our dream was that late flower
fading into ice.

I had thought...
But then you came
With this secret smile
And this look of anticipation
I took your hand and held it to my chest
A gentle strokes, a little caress, in a crowded street.

Now we sit here together
High above the sea
Far below the sky
Floating in dreamy pleasure

Gazing in each other's eyes
Under the blue
Over the blue
Midway between
Heaven and earth.

Heaven's Tears
Wake a new day
Knowing, remembering
The sky is crying
For all of us

We do not understand
We do not have words
A river of sorrow
A flood of despair

But the sun radiates love
A new day will break
Our sad hearts know this
And we cry with
All who have felt
All who have lost

Hands clutching with hope
Hearts' anticipation
And a prayer spoken
For a second chance

Come and listen to the light
of the dawn of the day,
as the sun blows his trumpet loud.

Listen to the white wings of butterflies,
as they flutter in graceful curtseys
flirting with the gentle breeze.

This may be our best day!
The trail that we tread yesterday is as new,
as secret as at our hearts' first dawn.

Come and listen to the deep,
as we row against the day.
Your gaze is free to roam along the horizon.

Listen to the dusk as our day is almost gone.
The night droning in distant hills,
but saying nothing about our next dawn.

Tomorrow may be our best day!

This is beautiful, Haunty. I'm always a little scared of poems - a product of literary trauma growing up - but this was easy to read and flows so elegantly. Very classy and I just might have to read this to my love on Valentine's day. :) Voted up and nice 30th hub; also SHARED.
