Poem: Embracing Life Together

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Embracing life together is about a man thinking how he acted when first stumbled acrossed her. Realizing how close the two of them have become he finds himself wanting more. He wants to move forward to each new day with her beside him. He wants them to embrace life together.

"I Want You (she's so heavy)" by The Beatles


Embracing Life Together

When he first stumbles across her
he grasp her hand
tightly intertwining it with his,
pulling her body close
gently placing kisses on her forehead.

Those early days of tenderness
bring them close
letting the two of them enjoy life sitting together
curled up in one another’s arms,
embracing life
facing obstacles hand in hand.

He wants to make her laugh,
to see her smile,
to wrap his arms around her,
to hold her hand
with his eyes glistening,
moving forward
to each new day
knowing she is beside him.


Embrace new beginnings for there shall be happiness behind it.

— Damian Stafon
