Lest Love Will Go (poem)

Updated on August 28, 2015

(Acrostic Sonnet)

Let loose your fancy thoughts of me awhile

Erase all doubt and cling to what is true

Stand fast with feeling’s reason for sweet smile

Take hold these patient hands that yearn for you


Let’s build a special loft for our repose

One space where it is safe for us to fall

Veiled roses we our secrets to expose

Else we will see an end we can’t forestall


What care to us what lonely people say

Is there some hidden need behind their care

Lost laymen who led their own love astray

Lights strangers’ ways to share in thier despair


Give way to love and its rich kisses sow

Our hearts will trust in love lest love will go

      Desire passionately expressed! Wonderful, Mh. I especially love the line, "Take hold these patient hands that yearn for you" and the last two lines at the end are divine.

      That video is wonderful too. I love the couple drawn to each other and dancing
