There was a time

Updated on December 23, 2011

by A. Gagliardi

There was a time when artist’s touch
Inspired the leaves to scent of musk.
When poet’s rhyme brought lover’s home
- inspired the couple’s love-sought poem.

There was a time when your embrace
Gave faint my heart to beat again;
When one soft look – a keen reply
- brought  love’s long ardor with one sigh.

There was a time when love’s desire
lay fast upon my lips.
When tender touch anticipated -
 yearned  for your embrace

But now, my love, ‘tis something new
as I long linger - gaze at you.
With artist’s eye and poet’s heart;
I still adore you, as the start.

Love lasts as long as we make it.

a wedding day memory.
a wedding day memory.
shades of love
shades of love

      This poem if dedicated to Tim, my husband who I have loved for these long years--with poetry, art and much drama. Still. Love lingers long past sensibility.
