This was a challenge poem; a friend of mine wanted me to write a poem that captured a long relationship over time, that he wanted to present to his to new lover that he had only known for a few weeks. I had 45 minutes, and I did have to do a revision because he wanted it shorter so he could memorize it before their big date. This is the version he decided on.
I hope enjoy Love Forevermore. Thank-you for taking the time to read this poem. Please feel free to comment; suggestions are always welcomed.
You and I love each other forever long,
Together our love is a number one song.
Through the hard times our love endures
The wounds we may have, our love cures.
Our love for one another shall never part,
Even if weakness creeps into our joined heart.
Joined together forever by destiny and fate,
Our Karmic bond made each other our soul mate.
Occasionally doubt may creep in,
Insecurities make us feel our love is a sin.
We must remember no matter what the future has in store,
Our love will continue to grow forevermore.
Each obstacle we may face no matter how hard it may be,
The seeds we will plant one day will continue to grow on our family tree.
Whenever one doubts whether it is meant to be,
We shall always remember our love is stronger and bound by destiny.
Our souls joined permanently together,
Will survive life’s great endeavor
Our love will always endure.
