Love Is Renewed - Poetry By Cathy Nerujen

Updated on September 18, 2018

Love Is Renewed

Girl of my dreams -
pearl of my heart -
how did it happen -
how did it start -
dreams became wishes -
flesh became food -
love is remastered -
love is renewed -

life it becomes you -
numb and undone -
fingertips willing -
tongue touches tongue -
tasting like rainbows -
reality skewed -
love is remastered -
love is renewed -

water-soft raindrops -
skin melting smooth -
tweening warm cushions -
gliding this groove -
lilly pink rosebud -
toffee warm fruit -
love is reloaded -
love is renewed -

take both my hands now -
look in my eyes -
tell me you love me -
tell the blue skies -
winters make summers -
yonnies and youth -
love we will conquer
love has renewed -

This poem is dedicated to my beautiful darling, Fehl Dungo, because being away from you for even the smallest time is torture. I love you so much, Fehl. You always bring out the best words in me.

      Hi Shanmarie, thank you for saying this. The line "flesh became food" is a reference to appetites... :P

      Hi Neil - thank you for the comment. It's always good to see your comments and you in the hubs. I hope you are keeping well, Neil. I think everyone knows that I am the Official HubPages Incurable Romantic poet. Hehehe.

      I just published another new poem called "I Want a Me And You", published yesterday. And I have more as well.

      Nikki it's totally okay, not many people here use the word. Only occasionally. LOL. Maybe inserting a new sounding word into a poem or a hub from time to time is not a bad thought...

      Oh the music by Men At Work is engrained in my mind so much. Aaah living in Tilbury was an experience. Watching the ships and boats there coming in and out every day. Five people living in a two bedroom house. Now that was cramped. But it was the Nerujens. LOL. We made the Brady Bunch look like a bunch of choristers by comparison. Hehehe.

      I love old rock, Van Halen - (Cassy calls them Van Helsing from some cheeky reason...), Foreigner, Joan Jett, Tom Petty, Travelling Tilburys, .. sorry Wilburys.... Heh :P

      Um, my father had Indian music on as much as possible, and Mum had modern music from Thailand. My mum likes music to dance to. As kids we got a big mix of world music every day, almost. But I learned to love it so much, Nikki. Memory renewed. :)

      lol no dont think i have ever heard of it til now. thanks for the detailed explanation, you are a true writer :) Ah I would like to be a yonny maybe... no we do not use that word here, and never heard this song. Thats good that you have something that reminds you of your childhood like that. I listen to old classic rock and remember listening to it when I was little because it is what my dad would always have on.

      So many times I read them and so many times I just know it more and more, Cathy. You are a born poet. These could be lyrics, these words are a tribute to Fehl, to love, to a fantastic pair of people who are just amazing together. There is always such a love positive vibe about you in everything you do and the things you say in words. There are not enough poets like you in this world.

      Every word is beautiful, and passionate. I love it. I'm moved and I'm even smiling. And did you just say you published another hub today? Duuh... I have to read. Okay it's published I just read it!

      Cathy, any person on earth who is ever loved by you is a very lucky person. Mwuah!!! XOXOX

      Yeah, yonnies. Such a lovely word to have there. :) You girls are Star People! :) That's my new term for you both, and for everyone at Flashstar!

      Hi Shauna - thank you for saying this. It means a lot to me. Well, if you ever met Fehl, you would see why. She is wonderful, smart and funny and a great writer, blogger and thrives as a freelance entrepreneur.

      Oh, she also published a poetry book called "Toss and Turn" on Amazon, and all the major stores out there.

      Hi Nikki. :)

      Aw, thank you for the comment. I am just posting another poem here as I rite. I am flowing and rhyming a lot lately. LOL. Oh Yonny is a name for a person. Yonny's or Yonnies are people who are especially spiritual or mental or physical freedom. Free spirits. Yonnies is also a euphemism used in Oz by everyone there. Aussies use the word as a term for things to do with young people.

      Wow, you never heard of this word? Maybe American's have no need for it or just don't use it, or whatever. I don't know. But it's a cool name.

      The band "Men at Work" use the word in lyrics in their music in the 1980's. It's from one of their hit albums titled "Business as Usual" - the song is titled "Down by the Sea". It's a nice song, from my childhood. I used to watch ships loading crates on the Thames river port, and I think of that song on my walkman playing that song. The one that played cassettes. LOL.

      Sorry, I probably gave too detailed an answer. Hehehe.

      This means so much to me. I am smiling now so much today.

      Oh Ruby, I sent you a comment message and I am sorry for your loss recently. Eva will smile down on you forever.

      My poem here was written while I was getting medical treatment recently, and I am slowly getting back into my routine. Thoughts of work next week are so not exciting right now.

      Yes, I believe in renewal of vows and promises with the special people I hold so dear to me. I sound so old-fashioned for a woman in her 20's. That is so not like me. But I would rather say the words, than think the words and not say them...

      Each poem for Fehl is a promise for me to keep for her. Thank you for the nice comments, Ruby. Please have a restful and a good day. I wish you warm thoughts and calm waters always. :)

      Oh my poetry loves to rhyme and flow, yes. It just does that. LOL. Thank you for the nice comments.

      Hi and good morning, Bluebird -

      Wow, I have always wanted to say that. Hehehe. Thank you. :)
