Accidental Poet

A Life Blessed with Love

Life for me began in the

Loving arms of my birthmother

Only to be stolen away

Raised in loving arms of another


Both my mothers

A secure place within my heart

A place earned with love

And from them I’ll never part


At the start of 5th grade in school

A new kind of love I found

The magnet pull I’d never known

A feeling between the stars and ground


The feeling of being ravished

As this new love devoured me

Consumed with elation

Never so happy


All this

From a young girl’s smile

Oh, how my heart fell in first love

Unmatched on countless sundials


Now, many years have passed

Since that very first day

And at sixty-four years old

Still, I feel the same way


Where she is today, I know not

But she’s the love of my life

In a life blessed with love

Whether or not my wife
