For whom my love sways

Updated on July 29, 2015

A Love Poem


For whom my love sways
special love song to sing on cloudy days
music for him when I am away.

Whether it is night or day
melody whispered in his ear
for whom my love sways.

Angelic tunes my heart obeys
for only him when I am far or near
sounds of heartstrings strung for him I may

my voice will be the one he hears.
To my knees I do pray
for whom my love sways.

Some will try to take him far, far away
for him the love will lack loving cheer
he’ll not listen to what they say

nor waste time with false tears.
Still I will return on my sunny way
for whom my love sways
special love song to sing on cloudy days.

      Faith (Theresa) is one my favorite people. She is just simply put: Awesome. I appreciate your kind words. Know that I will be over to read more of your hubs, but please be patient for most of my time right now if focused on my dad and family.

      Blessings,

      THE WONDERFUL

      The woman old who knows she sees the wonderful

      must have en-souled the images most beautiful

      she gleaned from many years of life experience

      that taught her how to recognize significance.

      She sets aside her verbal inconvenience

      to praise a younger woman poet's radiance.

      While doubting she has worthy comment meaningful,

      she does not seem to realize she is the wonderful.

      Best wishes to all,

      but esp. to those who recognize

      the beauty and strength in Kim's work,

      Max

      By the way, some of the poetry I truly admire is written in Villianelle, it is a challenging yet rewarding format and you did it well. Jamie

      I wish I could take credit for the repetition idea, but it is because of a prescribed form. Still, the fact you used the word, "gorgeous" makes me smile all over. I needed that smile.

      Thank You!

      Martin,

      Thank You so much. Just describing me as a writer of any kind makes my day. The villanelle is definitely a challenge, and you make it look so easy. Telling me that is "Well done" is just awesome coming from you.

      Wishing you a wonderful day,

      I thank you, but I do not know if you can safely speak for others.

      Smiles,

      This phenomenal work of art shows brilliant talent, with miles yet to grow (to who knows what heights?!), and serious study not only of poetic forms but of life forms as well. Emily Dickinson comes to mind.

      And the spectacular color painting from the Vatican archives looks as though the artist created it specifically for this poem, and that the woman at the center actually portrays you at the end of your poem.

      I'm sure I safely speak for many others when I say, Thank you, Kim, for presenting to the world these priceless treasures from your heart and soul and mind.
