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?

A peace she cannot explain
surrounds her
when he is by her side.

A love she cannot fathom
exists within her heart
when she is in his warm embrace.

A connection she fears
builds deeper
each time they are together.

He touches her soul
like no other can,
putting a yearning in her heart
wondering if this love is real.

"Love" by John Lennon
