Coming home to love

Updated on March 7, 2012
Source

Waiting, waiting, waiting!

I wrote this during a long day home sick from work, waiting for the love of my life to come home. Maybe I will show him this. Maybe.......mmm, if he brings me chocolate!!!

This hub is dedicated to my Bert and the deep love we share.

Home coming

There is a whisper in the trees

And a murmur on the breeze

There is a stirring in my heart

Too long we've been apart


There is change in the sky

As the sun fades from high

There is lightness in my song

Now that shadows are falling long


There is a click at the back gate

Not long now to wait

There is the sound of approaching feet

My happy heart skips a beat


There is a presence through the door

And a familiar scent that I adore

There is a shared secret smile

That makes waiting all worthwhile


There are strong arms around me

This is where I long to be

There is comfort in this space

And soothing love upon your face


There is a glint your eyes

As sensations start to rise

There is passion in the air

And I melt without a care


There are few words to say

As we talk the touching way

There is a telepathic knowing

How strong our love is growing


There is a whisper in the trees

And a murmur on the breeze

There is the setting of the sun

As our bodies blend as one.

.


Welcome home my Bert.

      Hi Fennelseed!

      I hope you are well! Bert is a very lucky man. Who wouldn't want to be thought of in the wonderful way you portrayed here. Your video reminded me of another love scene, one of my favorites from a movie I've watched over and over again because of the quality of this song and scene.

      Hope you and Bert enjoy it!

      May peace, joy and love always be with you both!

      Bruce

      Thank you James, I am glad you like my poem. It was a long day for me, feeling unwell and waiting, waiting for my love to make me feel better - and finally being in his arms made all the difference. Thank you so much for kind comment and votes, my best wishes to you from Annie.

      Hi Katrine, unfortunately there have been many tides, and deep sorrow, but then I guess that's life. I am so grateful to my partner for sticking by me through my troubled times. I appreciate also your lovely comment. My best wishes to you from Annie.

      Hello Annie, this poem is beautiful. A simple and pure expression of love, the greatest gift of all. It's so lovely to see how people can still connect deeply emotionally after being together for some time. And that's what is so amazing about it all, love that can survive any tides, often strengthened by sharing not only those nice and good things together, but also times of pain and sorrow...So my best wishes go to you both. :-)

      Hi Eddy, seconds is good!!! We are lucky, I know, and maybe knowing such deep sorrow and despair has heightened our capacity for the other extreme - happiness. We are so lucky also to both have loving partners and it high time I started to show my appreciation for my Bert, he has endured so much.

      We spent a very physical weekend working on a new area in our garden - our eternity garden, it's going to be a very special and beautiful spot.

      Thank you for this lovely comment, my friend, I hope your weekend was awesome as well. Best wishes dear Eddy, from Annie.

      I have already commented once but I'm being greedy and came back for seconds.

      We both have so many good things still in our lives ;you with Bert and everyone else in your family;then there's me with Dai and everyone else.

      I know that Dai has been with me every step of the way and must have at times felt at a loss ;not knowing what to do . However he was here for me and I cannot ever ask for more.

      We do both have so much joy still around us which I think is beginning to outweigh the not so good days.

      So here's a whole load of love and hugs for you Annie my very special friend and also for Bert.

      I wish you both a wonderful weekend.

      Eddy.

      Hi Eddy, thank you for your up, up and away!! My Bert has been very neglected for so long as my mind has been taken up with grief, its time to appreciate what he means to me and shower him with my love.

      So glad you like my poem. Best wishes my friend, from Annie.

      I thoroughly, and I mean thoroughly enjoyed this poem. It is through a very special love that you have been able to express yourself like this. And the song you chose to go with it, is one of my very favorite love songs. I am so glad that I stopped by. What a blessing it has been.

      There is no better feeling than the anticipation that goes with the love of your life coming home to your love. The tingling feelings, the heart throb as it beats faster. The greeting, smiles, touches, kisses, hugs and now you both know you are home. Well scribed my poetic friend. Bravo, voted Up and beautiful.

      Fennelseed,

      Thank you so much for this awesome, beautiful piece.

      (You will never know the 'comfort' and peace that I have received from this poem.)

      The song is one of my favorites and fits the poem perfectly.

      Great Job!

      Blessings!

      Ciao...Princess Prisca
