Life Circles: Poems of Hope: About Finding Love

Within each life circle a little hope exists.

Finding Love:

Life Circles: Poems of Hope: About Finding Love. Life circles by Pearldiver: Love, always moving forward from its source; we are that source. Of all the many things in our lives that are truly special; one of the most special things is finding love and sharing with another all the hope that the relationship brings. About finding love contains two poems of hope: First Love Valentine and Last Love.

Finding true love is not something all are fortunate enough to find in a lifetime. If you are lucky enough to find the love that touches your soul; you will know that nothing can ever match the experience. Some call this having a soul mate, others see this as far more. The duration of that love varies for each relationship; each relationship completes a full circle in life; irrespective of whether it lasts the duration of a lifetime, a year, or a dream.

First Love Valentine; to know of love so young; allows the seeds of hope for greater things to be sown. For each young girl this is an adventurous journey of her heart. For most young boys it is just an adventure. Where does the confidence required to capture the heart of a Valentine come from? Does he understand what it really means to her? Her hopes are of time spent together; just being; without the influence of others. His hopes are of having the confidence to let her know how he feels; without being rejected.

Last Love; is about having known the power of love and knowing that the wonderment of that love, can last a lifetime; even the lifetime beyond the end of the relationship. A tangible sense of being and intuitive knowledge that the spiritual connection shared with your lover; means that no matter what; you never walk alone. Enjoy Finding Love, Life and Poems of Hope.

Be My Valentine.

"Why is he sooooo shy?"

First Love Valentine.

Just one week before Valentine’s Day. All her friends knew who would be her Valentine. There was only one boy in her life. He lived next door and everyone had noticed how much he wished that she would notice him.

But he was so shy, so awkward. How could he tell her how he felt? He was sure she would choose another; she was so popular. He looked away and wished that he could catch her eyes, not looking away from him.

Her girl friends smiled at him, but gave nothing away. His friends were boys; they didn’t do that girl stuff; why would they find a girl more interesting than BMX, or Skateboards, or PlayStation or Football? Not many more days left he thought; stolen glances; each day hoping that she would notice how much he cared.

First Love; started this way, always he hoped; that no words needed to be spoken; fearing he would not find the right ones. Always she hoped that he would find the courage to ask her to be; his first love. Why is he soooo shy, she asked herself; always hoping he would be; her first love.

"Kiss First Valentine!"

Why do you like him?

“Tell me why you like him?” asked her Mum. “Because he is nice and my friend,” she replied. “So did you get her a present?” asked his Dad. “No Dad, she is just my friend,” he replied. “Well, I just happen to have got you chocolates, for doing your chores; but you must only give them to your Valentine,” said his Dad.

Today a special day dawned when he opened the door to find his first love there, with chocolates in a heart. “You can be my Valentine if you like chocolates.” She said, as she pushed her heart into his hands. “But I have to give you a present too!” He said. “No you don’t silly; you can just give me a kiss.” “But, but I have a present for you too,” he said, “I will get it from inside.” As he tried to turn away she held him and said, “Kiss First Valentine!”

First Love, not even chocolate can upstage the taste it leaves when it enters and conditions our lives.

Swans.

Grab a Coffee and Take the Time to Read Last Love.

First Love

Shadows form across her face.

Once so familiar. A prisoner of zebra tones and now ransomed heart.
Once so familiar. A prisoner of zebra tones and now ransomed heart.

Be guided by your heart.

Was I to follow?  To abandon other dreams?
Was I to follow? To abandon other dreams?

Like a sun's love of the moon.

Detached; but for brief encounters at dusk or dawn.
Detached; but for brief encounters at dusk or dawn.

The Creative Anticipation of Meeting a New Love.

A powerful half tone word is Hope; yet it provides all the colors of all your dreams.    And Dreams? Just take paper and a pen....
A powerful half tone word is Hope; yet it provides all the colors of all your dreams. And Dreams? Just take paper and a pen....

Last Love.

Shadows form across a face, that was once so familiar;

The fading light has captured her brown, smiling eyes

A prisoner to zebra tones and now with ransomed heart

Night falls and I wait; forever wait; for yet another sunrise.

ooOoo

She is gone. Leaving me with such heightened senses

A last love passed through my life; never meant to stay

Where is my soul; where is my heart; gone, my clarity

Surely not lost; nor casualties to; shadows merging into day.

ooOoo

I missed all that I did not keep; yet am fulfilled in every way

But for the echo of cryptic words; be guided by your heart

What did she mean; was I to follow; to abandon other dreams

Let go of what I knew; to seek all that I did not; or to be apart.

ooOoo

My last love could draw the tide to her; moon phases; her beauty

She asked that I believe in hope; a bottled emotion; a word in half tone

In dreams more real; I see her eyes; hear her songs; never forget

How; with such ransomed time; I can never truly walk this life; alone.

ooOoo

My last love was like that of the sun’s love of the moon; detached

But for brief encounters; at dusk or dawn; destined to be that way

There was no time for why; no room for hope, to color or influence

This circle of life; where moonlit darkness, will always follow a day

ooOoo

Night’s shadows form across my face; new love is not so familiar

Anticipation of the words yet to shine; life stories of hope yet to tell

Only now do I understand what it means to be guided by your heart

And for my last love; never meant to stay; I feel always; moonlight’s spell.

Rob...Exquisite word pictures that resonate with me in more ways than I care to say...I was quite taken by your simile of Sun and Moon...an eternal romance forever renewed by brief absences...

Life to me is process, and process is animated by the yin and yang, love and hate, life and death, good and evil...The interconnectivity of love is a precious thing to experience, even if only for a brief moment, as in Keats's " Fair creature of an hour "...I loved these poems, you must do more, my friend...Tight lines, Larry

Hi Maita, All my life I have got into trouble with them. Finding a 'soulmate' might never happen for 9 out of 10 people; but doesn't hope keep you thinking in the 1 out of 10? Maybe you only need a bigger net Maita lol. Take Care.

Whoa. I must be overly emotional right now, but I could barely handle this. Hard to explain for me. Just stuck a cord. Nicely done. Gonna go cry now.

Hello Laura.... Will I ever tell you how I knew your birthdate? No... I can't.. I Just Knew! It happens all the time.. I guessed Lyrics Birthdate a few days ago too.. Call it Scorpio Intuition I guess.

Thanks for reading this work Laura, sorry it has upset you.. but if it's any consolation writing Last Love was abit like that too. Good to see you out and about.. Take Care.. Be Well Laura.

I'm intrigued by you, Pearls... It's okay it upset me. Last Love was what got me. You need to write a hub on fate. I think you could handle that topic remarkably well. Hugs.

Pearldiver 6 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

What intrigues you about me Laura? Lol... I wonder if it is the same thing that intrigues me about me? It is quite a deep poem isn't it; Last Love. I don't want to write about fate... It is too closely aligned to my crazy heart. Take Care Laura.

Again a wonderful piece of artistry and illustrations. Love so fleeting and yet so needed in our lives, a child if left alone will die without the touch and love of it's mother. I have loved and been loved and now I rest, love is no longer love as I knew as a young man, but a memory of the past. Thank you for this wonderful gem Pearl. It meant something to me and a little tear came out of my left eye. Peace
