Giving Her Wings

Updated on November 5, 2017

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

His love took her to the skies,

flying ever so high,

his love gave her wings -

to do unimaginable things.

To become one with nature

and blossom like a rose on the vine,

as long as his love was hers,

it took her heart to greater heights,

sailing on clouds above.

She had long forgotten what it was like,

when she didn’t have his love,

to give her wings,

to make her glow

and be warmed by his tender smile.

She knew that if ever they said good-bye,

her heart would cease to beat,

frozen in time -

never to love again.

So she reminded him to never forget,

to say I love you,

at the end of each day,

for tomorrow might be too late -

finding one of them on the starry path across the heavens.

So let your love give my heart wings,

while we can smile together,

walk hand in hand

and live for our love.

In turn he knew to hang on,

to kiss her,

to treasure the love they shared,

so much time has gone by,

so much still ahead,

they were glad for all they had,

looking at each to say -

thank you for giving me wings.

        Thought I had your e-mail. Can't find it. My very last poem today I noticed also has the word. But here is the one that I was looking for:

        A Tapestry of Colours

        Rain clouds are descending,

        Like a multitude of sentient beings.

        Struggles rise from the embryo;

        Sometimes taper with passing age.

        All around is wonder;

        Yet my heart is paved with sorrow.

        Spring rises;

        Nature offers solace on solemn days.

        Hope pushes me,

        In search of an unfathomable tomorrow.

        I rise and sleep, and sleep and rise…

        Still no beacons; no virgin dawns.

        Beneath this murky veil, my flame burns brightly;

        Routinely, I pursue my own desires.

        Thanks Gypsy. Hope it's not too bad posting it here. Peace.
