This Feeling of Love

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

this-feeling-of-love

This feeling of love,

made me as high as a kite,

gave my imagination wings.

I wanted to fly to the skies,

glide along with the clouds -

that had a shimmery slivery glow.

There was no more fight,

left in me when I surrendered to your love,

this wondrous feeling,

made me want to dance with the wind,

spread my arms and twirl about.

Made want to shout,

at long last –

love had come through the door.

The feeling that makes one smile,

walking mile for mile,

seeing two lovers –

dancing in the rain.

Hoping to fly like birds up above,

it made so giddy,

as I breathlessly fell into your arms.

Wanted to sing,

all the best love songs,

just for you.

This special feeling of love

made me want to dream

under the twinkling night stars

made me think that the moon above

was winking at me

your hand in mine

as the new harvest moon shines

a feeling most fine

knowing you are here

knowing you are mine

it made me quite delirious -

this feeling of love.

When love becomes tarnished,

like a copper penny no longer bright,

it just takes the sweetest kisses –

to once again make it right.

Life can just fine,

when there is no love around,

it is always those golden memories,

that twinkle and shine,

time and time again –

bringing back that feeling of love.

Being in love is like a rollercoaster and once the ride is over you can still enjoy yourself or look forward to new adventures. You explore the emotional highs well.

Setting the right mood for Valentine's, I suppose. Flower and all. John Lennon is always awesome!

My favorite topic, Rasma! To find that type of love just once is a gift of a lifetime.
