Poem: Is This Love Real?

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

Is this love real is a poem about a feeling she gets when he puts his arms around her. Each moment he is by her side she feels at peace. Even though she fears this connection she has a yearning inside her heart wondering if this love is real.

"Real Love" by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers


Is This Love Real?

When he's by her side,

a peace she cannot explain,

surrounds her.

A love she can't fathom

dwells inside her heart

when he hugs her with a warm embrace.

Each time

a connection they once feared,

builds deeper.

He touches her soul

like no one else,

making her heart yearn with desire ,

wondering if this love is real.


Love is the whole thing.

We are only pieces.

— Rumi

"Love" by John Lennon
