Love Takes Wing

Updated on January 18, 2017

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia with my hubby, Martin & cat, Sid.

Let’s make our love last,

for more than just one day.

Let’s fly together -

over the clouds, past rainbows bright.


Let’s make our love last,

make it better day by day.

Let’s dance together -

in the dark, starry night.


Let’s make our love last,

through all the yesterdays and tomorrows.

Let’s fly you and I as if our love had wings -

leaving fireworks trailing behind.


Let’s make our love last,

for all the years to come,

so that our love can grow -

more beautiful with each passing day.


Let’s make our love last,

never forgetting to say, I love you.

Hand in hand just you and I,

from sunrise to sunset.


Let’s make our love last,

remembering the good times

and memories that shine -

know that for always I am yours and you are mine.


Let’s make our love last,

like sparkling diamonds,

upon the waters -

that the moonlight turns to sliver.


Let’s make our love last,

never regretting anything in the past.

With bright smiles

and kisses sugary sweet.


Let’s make our love last,

as we go through the years

and our hair becomes peppered with strands of white,

we’ll hold on to each other –

while our world keeps spinning.

      I love the repeating, " Let's make our love last. " Beautiful Rasma!! I also enjoyed the video...

      I've said this before, but it's worth saying again. The use of the repetitive...is very effective. "Let's make our love last" is seared in the brain of the reader, almost hypnotic in effect....very well done!
