I Am Sorry for Stealing Her Love.

Updated on June 8, 2014

Love not, lest you take love from another more deserving

"If you fall in love you had better damn well give your all or love will fall" ed

Into - please excuse

So I carried my young son out into the fresh night air for our routine of saying good night moon and good night stars and sleep tight sun. And I asked as he stared into the heavens if it was the prettiest thing he had ever seen and he began to nod his head and then stopped and shook it and Mommy is! I reckon I have done a decent job so far. But it enticed me as he and his mother slept to write this piece.

Small eclipse for man, but "a total eclipse of the heart"?

Who do you attribute a photo of the moon too?

The Apology

I am so sorry oh great moon

You to whom all lovers swoon

I am so sorry of marvelous stars

You who grace from here past Mars

I am so sorry setting sun

From you all life has begun

To all you heavenly bodies with beauty and grace

I hang my head in some disgrace

I stole a piece of your unearthly glory

Just to complete my lone love story

I captured one of your kind

How explosive this thing we mortals call love

The decision

How could I ever be so blind

I took her here and bound her tight

I hold on to her with all my might

So she may stay just one more day

With me here again to play

I stole from the heavens above

So she could be my one true love

And give me a child born of need

To fulfill my earthly greed

I felt so bad

I felt so sad

I resolved to set her free

So in her splendor she could be

What can grow from a mustard seed?

Pray to be a small part

What is greater? Love or the universe?

"If you are not sure, hang on, and you will find out, either way it is worth the effort, but if you want to be really sure,,,, let go!" ed

Freedom

With dazzling lights and for others

Up in the heavens with no borders

I celebrate the day I gave her freedom

For she returned into my kingdom

And promised me this is where she shines

This is where her heart dines

So we are free now from our jail

And both chose from here to hail

My wife, my love for all eternity

Has chosen to stay with me.

      Hmmph, we out west here do not care about any team that would take it from our Kings. We are sore losers out here.

      We will take those high fives --- Hey wait, aren't they high fours? Did I say I like the new picture.

      Lovely writer you are Sir Eric - you always humble me with your words and I learn from you everytime I arrive here and of course in your wise and often witty comments to me, lol.

      I am listening to an Irish composer John Field who sounds like Chopin and having a nice cuppa lemon ginseng tea and waiting for the 2nd game of the Stanley Cup finals tonight online - sending you a high five from two human hands and four furried paws courtesy of Colin, Gabe and Tiffy at lake erie time canada 4:45pm

      Eric, this is so honestly beautiful! You did not steal her from the Heavens; she asked to go to you and the Heavens shared her.

      If you love it set free and if it comes back... don't ever let go!

      Theatre girl, time will tell, but any day they could return to the heavens so I guard each moment. Such is the life of a poor man chained to the angels.

      That is so sweet! I love the introduction, your inspiration for it. And all three parts of this poem are great. I love that the "heavenly body" decided to stay with you! I bet if you read this to her, she would swoon :)
