Be To Me



Be To Me.


Be to me eternity's song
and not as lust's transient notes.
Be as the forever of strong
affection and not just for moments.


Be like faith without limit
and not as doubt's breakable bond.
Be to me true as infinity
for heaven applauds meant resolve.


Be alight to ageless passion  
and not just in first blush of youth.
Be to me fire ever lasting
                for such keeps alive love's lit beauty.

              Unsure here whether this is directed to a partner or to the joy of the glory of creation and one's faith in such.

              For me it was easier to interpret this piece as the latter. For my faith in my beliefs is strong and committed. Each day I find some things to marvel over.

              • Fay Slimm.

                Tis directed to whom you as a reader wish my dear Dusky - the glory of nature is certainly something for which we can write lines of applause as love of its gifts lights its genuine beauty - a lovely comment and thank you for your visit.

              • Robert Haigh

                A lovely message, poetically articulated, Fay! When love runs on smooth rails, all our perceived problems seem to fade away to almost nothing. A fine write!

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Yes Robert love need a smooth run and its rails will clear mud of doubt if we work at forgiving mistakes. Thanking you muchly for your lovely comment.

                  Lust is quite transient, I agree with that. A subtle yearning for a genuine connection. Lovely πŸ˜€

                  • Fay Slimm.

                    Yes Nick love is not transient as is lust but is builds as it grows with infinity its goal......... thanks ever so for your visit and comment.

                    Wonderful Dear Fay
                    For an old schooler like me
                    Be there as a poetry
                    Not as a passing moment
                    Be there for eternity
                    Not a sudden visit
                    Loved your words dear Fay

                  • Doggerel Dave

                    Fay, I really was pleased to read that you were motivated by the graphic, because yesterday I tried (and failed) to explain how β€˜Love’ for me is not something which can be attractively rapped up and presented as a fait accompli in flowery verse, but is dynamic ever changing never final or static. The graphic expresses this – the pieces have a way to go, perfection is still ahead. Your poem captures that: it is so much more than β€˜just in first blush of youth.’

                    • Fay Slimm.

                      Dear Dave - -Am delighted you discovered the reason for the chosen graphic - -- indeed love is ever dynamic and my thanks for your wise and most welcome comment on love's wavering way toward perfection. Thanks so much for dropping by for a read of Be To Me.
