Love Lives Up To Its Name
One special day,
Somehow we met.
A chance beginning.
Many days I've known,
All have come and gone.
Leaving ripples in my mind.
Yet over these many days,
Each felt one at a time,
I know I have been alive.
Since that special day,
You were always in my thoughts.
Yet on so few did we ever touch.
That hardly mattered when I saw you,
Absorbed by your beautiful smile,
Captured, staring into your eyes.
I knew, to be close to you,
Was really living life large,
Making room for a greater dream.
Now, each day feels so different.
I never feel quite the same,
Love lives up to its name.

Good work! This poem is to the point, as well, as it is emotionally expressive to those of its audience..

Rich - I can empathize with this work. That one person, brought in your life makes for a new beginning.

Right now, I see my life in terms of, before I was married, and ,my wonderful life.  Finding that one person than can capture your heart makes life worthwhile.

NIcely structured love poem, Rich..Love certainly does live up to its name. So many lesser feelings go by the samd moniker...len

A beautiful piece, Rich! Some times all we have is our dreams.

I know the feeling well.

Very tender and heartfelt read.

You have wonderful imagery and magical
words that seem to have a soothing effect on me.

Your poem is every bit as dreamy as its title...great write...

"Leaving ripples in my mind."....I love this!

Rich, you have an attitude that will take you far. I have written a poem with the exact same theme. I appreciate this fully, as I relate to it so completely.

Your closing lines are like an exasperated sigh...and oh the volumes it speaks.


Lovely penning...heartfelt and sincere. *hugz*

Love has it's ups and it's downs. It's a roller coaster ride for sure, nicely done, Joe

Very nice, Rich, although it leaves me feeling a bit empty, like lost love tends to do.  Good work.  ML

Tugs the heart strings for sure!

Love can take us up to the highest highs and then down to the lowest lows...Nothing can heal like the power of love, and nothing can wound like the loss of it.

Awesome job...
