Updated on June 16, 2017

Romance is like beautiful poetry to Phyllis. She loves roses and poetry. The best poetry, she says, is about enduring love.

Journal of Love

Journal within this heart and soul of mine,
Let not the words in secret kept, escape
Thy pages written for me as a cape
To wear with love and proudly for all time.
For all eternity the love in each line
Expresses my own highest truths which shape
My life with ecstasy, ever to drape
My heart in a loving cloak so divine.
I have vowed to ever hold close my dreams,
Dreams which have given me strength and courage,
To live each day with love in my heart and soul,
And fear not thoughts of what tomorrow brings,
For each tomorrow is hope to flourish
The love within my heart that makes life flow.

This Love is Like a Red Red Rose

Dear Heart

Sweetly keep, dear heart, this journal within,
Among the treasures of the life I live,
For there will come the day when I can give
The words I keep hidden to one deep in
My heart, the veil between us so thin,
It will some day vanish, when I relive
Those beautiful dreams that always forgive
Life's struggles and the mistakes made again.
Is ever love, strongly known, forbidden,
When within the heart one knows it is true?
Is it something to make one so fear it?
Oft times one keeps their emotions hidden,
Even when the loved one already knew,
For love will be made known in the spirit.

Only he has the key to her Heart

      Lovely verse, Phyllis, and the title caught my eye because I recently wrote a hub called "the Journal of My Life.." quite a coincidence. Well done.

      Beautiful poem! It takes courage to state some of the things in our hearts. Writing them down in private releases them but only to ourselves.

      I loved this.
