Fourteen Years

Fourteen years between tears and the mind

 I linked with mine–

To think that we've met, danced, lived, loved together

and Yet–  it seems, as you say, only 6 months 'til today.


And how many fourteens do we have left Lynette?

What will they hold? I'll bet– for more dancing, romancing,

walks and rides, growing old–  whilst I search thine eyes

and See– only the purest of love there for me.


For me! By God! For ME! I've seen it,

and early on only flittingly believed it.


But tis True Love I know, and with its nurture I'll grow

to believe that there is someone who truly loves me.

"Take My Hand",  "My True Love", and "Walk With Me",

"Let it Be", "Let it Be", YOU and ME in love–


Into Sunsets–

Like we just met.

              Wow a lovely sentimental poem to the wife, I love reading marrieds poem as they are rare compared to fickle lovers poems which are way too many.
              Wonderful combination of freeverse n rhyme in light style. Kudos poet. Great to read from u again .

              Very sweet and heartfelt.
              Puts my 'young years' of 41 into perspective.
              May you and Lynette still dance, even if it is just in each other's eyes. X
