POETRY: OUR LOVE


I can live a thousand lives


But still I wouldn't find


That special kind of feeling


That love like yours and mine


I could travel across the world


I could climb high mountain tops


But none of this compares


To what me and you got


There's no one on this Earth


That loves me like you


You are just like my shadow


Behind me in all that I do


Baby you are so beautiful


Both inside and out


The touch of your skin


The essence of your mouth


Look at that long dark hair


I can't help but smile


Babe you really make


This life of mine worthwhile


Those pretty brown eyes of yours


I can see right in your soul


From that first day promise


Saying you'll never let me go


We have truly been blessed


This love of yours and mine


Here we stand 50 years later


A love that has stood time


Baby you made my life


I am so thankful for that


If they gave me back all those years


I wouldn't ever give them back

Sueswan, thanks for the vote and comments. I actually wrote this while walking when I saw this elderly couple holding hands. They had to be in their 80s. I captured the moment and wrote. I only have 7 years. :( I am sure me and my wife have 43 years left. She always says I am more like a woman with my emotions???????? I said, whatever makes you happy! :)

Dear Rosemay. I am touched. It is nice to know that you can feel that connection while reading. I try to capture that in every poem. You are much appreciated. I send a smile to you for the votes. :)

Femme!!! Hello. Thanks for coming by this evening. I have been up all night writing new articles. I believe I managed 4 new ones since 10 last night U.S. eastern time. I guess I fell asleep on one. I had like 26 words spelled wrong. See ya soon.

Haha You captured the old couple wonderfully. I must admit I was quite taken aback to discover that you had lived long enough to be married for 50 years, I did not think you were that old, Pleased I had it wrong and you still have 43 years of love to look forward to... :-)
