Poem: Honorable Love

Poem Summary

Honorable love is a poem about how she hopes a man who loves her will feel. She wants a man who is not afraid to tell the world about their relationship. One who displays his affection wanting her smile to grow brighter each day. Who looks forward to their love lasting a lifetime.

"The Next Time I Fall - Peter Cetera & Amy Grant"

Honorable Love

Her heart aches

to feel the tender love of a man,

who’s not afraid to tell the world

she exists.


One who displays their relationship with honor,

showing the deep affection

he carries in his heart

to all corners of society.


One who yearns to touch each star

dancing in her eyes,

making her smile grow brighter

lighting a pathway for everlasting love.

"Peter Cetera - Glory of Love"

You are welcome

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 08, 2021:

Chrish,

I see...maybe that alternate consciousness...just kidding.

Have fun.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 08, 2021:

Chrish,

Thank you for clearing that up.

Enjoy your day.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 07, 2021:

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 07, 2021:

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 07, 2021:

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 07, 2021:

Chrish,

Do you go by Chrish or Treshty?

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 07, 2021:

Chrish,

Thanks! Looking forward to your success.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 07, 2021:

I will !

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 06, 2021:

Chrish,

Thank you.

I love your enthusiasm!

Your comment makes me smile.

Your expression - the term love for youths is just like a thought on the surface from their dusty little head. This is so cool.

Take care & keep writing.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 06, 2021:

I loved what "always exploring" wrote! 100% agree !!!!

Today and forever I will always chose to ask those who have a history and or great experiences merely because they know the best. Nowadays the term love for youths is just like a thought on the surface from their dusty little head.

This is too beautiful Ms Brenda!

Honor in love

Rosina,

This is the kind of love all women should expect.

Some men just try to keep a secret life...like it's the last part of their manhood...too afraid to let go.

Thanks & have a nice day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 05, 2021:

Vanita,

Thank you for your kind words about this poem.

"A good relationship involves whole-hearted acceptance from both sides"...that is so accurate & beautiful.

There are those who use lame excuses, reasons they make sound believable...but there is a real reason lurking beneath the surface.

Take care & have a great day.

Rosina S Khan on March 04, 2021:

Honorable love is that kind of love which every woman would like to have and feel. It is the most special and blessed kind of love that none would like to miss. Thanks for sharing, Brenda.

Vanita Thakkar on March 04, 2021:

This definitely is one of your best poems, Brenda. A good relationship involves whole-hearted acceptance from both sides. You have described the simple, tender and beautiful aspirations of a loving heart in equally simple and beautiful words.

Tendencies to hide is indicative of issues related to trust / confidence, fears, insecurities, weird expectations / ambitions .... unfortunately there are such people in the world who create a mess of emotions and ambitions that are difficult to understand and live with.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

Ruby,

Thank you.

Awe...the tangled webs some weave.

I'm with you...everyone wants to feel special.

Have a great day.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 04, 2021:

I think every man and woman wants to be recognized as someone special. I can't imagine being with anyone who hides that fact. Interesting!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

If one loves you...he should not hide you away for only certain eyes to see.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

Shauna,

Yeppie! That is awful.

I guess he was worried more about keeping his fans than you.

One would think if a man loves a woman, he would want to tell everyone...not just a select few.

This mentality is hard for me to comprehend, but it definitely exists.

Take care.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on March 04, 2021:

Brenda, I once dated a musician whom I was crazy about. We worked together and he had no bones about letting everyone in the shop know we were dating, but when it came to his gigs, I wasn't to let on to anyone (in the audience i.e. adoring groupies) that we were a couple. He eventually forbade me to attend his gigs. So humiliating. No one deserves to be hidden behind the curtains.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

Misbah,

Thank you.

I feel that honor & respect play a huge part in one's relationship.

Glad you liked this one.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

Ann,

Thank you.

I'm happy for you.

A few things have put my writing on the back burner and I am trying to get caught up.

Plus...a few more unexpected delays have come to light that will slow me up a bit more within this next week.

I just gotta make certain to find time to write.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 04, 2021:

Peggy,

Thanks!

Yes, I believe this kind of love is a blessing for both.

Have a great day.

Misbah from The Planet Earth on March 04, 2021:

Very nice poetry Brenda

yes the acceptance of your love in front of the world is very necessary

beautiful, I enjoyed

honor and respect are the main essentials of a healthy love relationship

Blessings

Ann Carr from SW England on March 04, 2021:

Lovely poetry, especially the last verse, Brenda. Very romantic. If only they were all like that! I'm lucky to have a lovely man by my side now, but I've had my share of the opposite.

You're working fast today, Brenda!

Ann

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 04, 2021:

Love, as you describe in your poem, is a blessing for both people involved.
