What She Teaches Me

Accidental Poet

Since I was ten years old

She’s taught me about love

About appreciating

Gifts from Heaven above


I fell in love with her

Why, I don’t really know

But I’ve been learning everyday

The meaning of love to know


She came into my life

Found her way to my heart’s core

And four years later

I saw Sharon no more


At first thought

This you might think so sad

But the one in this story’s center

To me a lesson not so bad


She teaches me

How love can touch me so deep

And though she’s not here

Her smile in my heart to keep


I have known within my heart

Love so sweet it shines

Aged over fifty years now

The purest of love wines


When my time is up

And of Heaven’s home I’ll be

With all I’ve learned of love

What she teaches me

    Love teaches us so much in our lives AP, it should always be there for us all.

      Now this is a tricky one indeed .. On the one hand, and I guess most importantly .. You have crafted a poem one might just be a tad envious of ... On the other, and this is an absolute fact, back in the dim and distant past when I was on a school cruise and suffering with sea sickness in the middle of the Mediterranean, I met and fell in love with a beautiful girl called Sharron Rose .. Funnily enough, it was not until many years later that I learnt about the fauna after which she was presumably named ... Seems to me, we have more than just a love for words in common ... Smashing AP, simply smashing ...
