How Wondrous is Love

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


How wondrous is love,

when there is companionable silence,

when all the words have been said

and no more are needed,

to express your feelings.

When tears fall,

loving arms surround you

and dispel all the fears.

When symbols and gestures,

are all that are needed

and a loving, beating heart,

to let you know that you will be loved -

for a whole life long.

When love songs take on a new meaning,

the words expressing what you are feeling.

That growing old does not matter,

for its love that keeps you,

so very young at heart

and each moment you gaze,

upon one another,

is like the first time,

that wondrous moment when you met

and the stars were dancing in your eyes.

Everywhere you go hand in hand,

knowing that love surrounds you,

sweet kisses shared,

no more lonely nights,

together dreaming by starlight.

From the start of each day,

to the nighttime,

always tender words of love –

follow close behind.

Love can bind you for a lifetime,

knowing that you will never be alone

and that someday,

If there be sad partings,

you will get through it all

and one day the two of you,

will walk hand in hand,

along the silvery trail of stars,

In the heavens up above –

how wondrous is love.
