My Lips your Lips have Kissed


My lips your lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I’ve not forgotten, your arms held me tight
All through the night; hold me till day’s light
to wake up with the beam of your bright blue eyes.
Upon the window a gleam of sunshine streams,
And in my heart there stirs a quiet joy
For I now know that death cannot destroy
the life we built together on pleasant dreams.
Thus in winter still stands a robust tree,
For I know what birds have perched the branches,
And its boughs full of leaves do the dances:
I can say love has come like a great sea,
Never before has someone been in love more,
Then I have been with you forevermore.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This poem is an adaptation of Edna St. Vincent Millay poem What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why. I read her poem and was captivated by it rhythmic cadence. I used her first line to prime my thoughts and this is the poem I wrote. I dedicate this poem to my wife.
