Poem for a loved one

Updated on March 22, 2014

I am still uncertain as to what it was

A heart in turmoil or a yearning soul

A vulnerable point in time or a raging storm

A peculiar energy resonating from within

My heart, have faith

Break the warm ice we have frozen in, for long

In waiting

For a flame to spark and hearts to collide

Mistaken I was!

For my heart throbbed for him only

Naive, unaware, I was, when you slipped past my walls

Indeed a magical time it was, a pouring out of my heart

Never has my heart bled in such great joy and comfort

Love I believed was cliché

A promise for forever, thick and thin

Selfless dedication of the body, soul and mind

But why is it that my heart pounds every time you praise me

Why is it that my heart aches in suffering when we depart

How have I grown to become so sure yet you remain my only weakness, my only fear

For there isn't a day on earth I don't long to spend with you

A night I don't pray to be by your side, under the moonlight

Riding the constellations, searching the skies

A world of our own

Now we seldom meet

but you hold my hand every night, when I close my eyes

Your gentle voice say my name, your hand touch my face

Oh how much I crave to live in that moment forever

With my lover, my best friend, forever and ever.

      Hi sariasaeed,

      Your poem touched my heart as it will of many readers---and I am happy we have another poet on HubPages.

      This was my first poem of the morning---something beautiful to start my day off right.

      Have a great day,

      Bobbi Purvis

      The poem is quite beautiful. I like it very much. Yet it conveys a mixture of yearning uncertainty. Hope all goes well. Much peace.
