A Lover's Prayer

Updated on September 1, 2010

Let us never lose our joy in each other

Our hope, our happiness together

Let us never lose the sense of the beautiful

We found in each other's eyes.

 Let us lie down together

Entwined, so close, our two hearts beat as one

As my gentle hand smooths your shoulder

Your loving fingers run through my hair.

 Let us lie down lightly

Let time not dim the joy of our nearness to each other

Let us temper together the stormy weather

On the ocean of our lives together.

And should death part us

Let it be only the finale of seem; a temporary ending

Let us be reunited in heaven,

There to share the glory of our creation, our souls washed clean

Once again

With our Creator

Forever and ever

Amen.

      Thank you, epigramman. It's the only poem I've ever written. I'm not sure where it came from. I'm glad to share it.

      ..Epi-man always returns to the classics - and this is not only a lover's prayer but a daily prayer and reminder as well that life is a delicate balance and often we don't know what tomorrow will bring - and such solace and beauty in your poetic words of wisdom too!

      Great! short poem but with really touching words. I love this part " Let us lie down together Entwined, so close, our two hearts beat as one As my gentle hand smooths your shoulder Your loving fingers run through my hair." Keep up the good work you are doing!

      Thank you, a kirchner and sofs for those lovely comments. Oh, yes, we need to treasure each other. You said that so well.

      A. Kirchner: I've got to congratulate you and Bob for your blessed 35 years together, and I'm so glad you both can still find the joy in each other.

    • sofs profile image

      Amen! Beautiful!

      Let us lie down lightly

      Let time not dim the joy of our nearness to each other

      Let us temper together the stormy weather

      On the ocean of our lives together.

      These four lines speak volumes about marriage, and how we need to treasure what we have, while we have it!

      Thank you for sharing these beautiful thoughts with us!

      Beautifully done and this is my favorite line - Let us never lose our joy in each other. That is what dreams are made of and having my Bob for these 35+ years I can honestly say we have never lost our joy in each other. What a gift that is. It is something I will treasure for eternity.

      Thank you all so much for your VERY KIND comments. This is only the second poem I've written in my entire life. It seems I can appreciate poetry but not very often write it. You are so kind to me for my effort. Thank you all again.

      love this....especially the 'souls washed clean' part. i think about that sometimes...about dearly departed loves waiting somewhere, perhaps in the afterlife, for their true love.

      rating UP and 'Beautiful'.

      This was beautiful Paradise... I loved the lines: 'Let us temper together the stormy weather...on the ocean of our lives together.' Only someone lucky enough to have found true love can imagine what it feels like... how one wants to spend a lifetime with one another and yet be together through eternity as well! I pray too that every man and woman experiences this joy... just as all lovers never be apart. Keep writing... I know you have so much in you to give... much love x
