Where dose Love Reside?

Updated on December 9, 2012

Love posed an image in my mind, begged me closer for a look

I saw a centered ivory throne and I the kingdom took

I kneeled beneath the jeweled crown, proclaimed myself the king

Kingdom mine, all love come serve, the hand that wears the ring

Her heart retreated, left a cry, which echoed through the halls

A love so centered does not rule, my heart because it calls

Remove the center, better still, my heart upon your throne

Raise my heart if love will rule, my need above your own

Love posed an image in my mind, begged me closer for a look

I gave her heart the ivory throne, gave her the crown I took

She laid the crown upon my head and quietly knelt beside

Love creates a vacancy where others can reside.

      Interesting take on marriage...I saw you left a brief note on my last Hub, so thought I'd come and take a look, I'm glad I did. I've decided to become a follower, hope you will do the same. Anyway a very Merry Christmas to you and your family.

      Poet to poet, man to man, husband to husband, from common ground we live and love. May we do it well and call each other friend because we did.
