For Eternity and More

Updated on March 3, 2011

It happened without warning...
I didn't have a clue...
no hint or intimation...
the arrival, yet on que.
there was no invitation.
at least, none, I can recall...
I never even dreamed of
any writing on my wall...
unannounced and unexpected
came your knock upon my door
to alter my reality
for eternity and more.

I heard your softest knocking
like a whisper or a sigh.
could not, yet, imagine
who would dare to come or why.
I held no grand illusions,
had resigned my heart to fate.
sweetest love had passed me by
and I had ceased to wait.
Though saddened by this lonely fact,
that knocking at my door
would alter my reality
for eternity and more.

Yes, it happened without warning...
I just didn't have a clue...
had never even fathomed that
my dream could, yet come true.
There standing on my threshold...
with a burning rose in hand
love has come to visit.
still not sure I understand.
I can not, yet, explain it but
your knock upon my door
has altered my reality
for eternity and more.

      This is a beautiful poem. I imagine there are several others who have went through this same feeling without the words to describe it. You have given a voice to those without with your writing.

      Dearest Janet, I am both humbled and embarrased to read your comment for your presence here I don't deserve. I have gone into hiding, and you found me and now I guess "I'm IT"!Your loyalty touches my soul, Girl, as I hang my head in shame.

      I just love your lyrical comment! Alas, although it is true my reality has been altered for eternity and was by an angel from another realm...not a man on a horse...but its a nice thought! Thanks! Your comment made me smile!

      The man on the white horse

      is the lady's fantasy no more

      No, he's a new modern man

      With less brawn, show's up at the door

      With a rose in hand,to melt your heart

      Oh success, someone you truly can adore
