A Timid Heart Asks

Life is often so funny, so spontaneous and so unexplainable. Sometimes, it surprises you and sometimes that surprise moves you with the power of a butterflies wings. At first you don't know if you felt anything at all. Then you realize what has happened and the magnitude of it sends you into a special place which can only be described poetically.

Though a novice, this is my attempt to explain the power of a simple yes, spoken to a timid heart after a question of great importance. When the answer comes, it propels you forward light years from where you are, leaving ripples along the way without moving you an inch and in that moment time is memorialized as it lifts you into the stratosphere of joy. Speechless, you begin the journey of life in partnership with another soul, not knowing the outcome or the destination, but with the intention of just sharing the ride!

A Grateful Heart Says

Yes seems such an undemanding word

I often took it for granted,

Then it rolled off of your lips

So gently it warmed me like the sun

Though life comes at us fast

It was the softness of your whisper,

Your I do made time surrender

to the moment of a kiss.

With a simple yes we discovered

How long forever is,

And forever is lengthened

by a grateful heart.

Thank you for loving me

Enough to say yes

Would anyone be brave enough to rate your marriage proposal? Offered or received!

      Thank you SanneL!

      I hoped that someone would notice how grateful I am for the presence of my wife in my life. Even in my oft ogrish ways, there is a heart beneath that knows how fortunate he is to love and be loved. One day perhaps, I will be able to do more than write about it, that is, it will come to the surface and be seen by the one to whose yes is most important to me.

      Thank You and please keep reading and writing!

      What a beautiful poem! I liked it very much.

      "Then it rolled off of your lips, so gently it warmed me like the sun" Magnificent! A simple yes can be so dynamic!

      Up, beautiful and sharing.

      Thank you Peggy W,

      I'm grateful for the opportunity to write here on hubpages and for kind comments such as yours! I'm curious, if you don't mind me asking, what attracted you to this poem? I don't write much poetry, but I really enjoy the feeling I get when it seems to flow well. Thanks in advance for responding!
