Weaving a Tapestry of Love

Updated on November 2, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

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.

I’d like you to weave,

your love about me like a tapestry,

in bright and brilliant colors -

reflecting how you feel.

Show me that you believe,

in the love that we share.

I’d like to see,

a lot of red,

to show me that your heart,

was true and full of love -

right from the start.

As lovely as the reddest roses,

growing on the vine.

A lot of green,

so that our love can always grow anew,

with the changing of every season.

The brilliant blue of summer skies

and the shimmering sea,

where we walk along the shore,

leaving footprints in the sand,

that the waves wash away,

returning again and again,

to bring back our signatures -

time and time again.

The yellow of the sun,

shining down upon our love,

purple for the special twilights we share,

gazing at the sun going down,

spreading streaks of pink and purple,

across the skies.

Waiting for the night to come riding in,

closing its dark curtain -

upon the light of day.

Create a tapestry of love,

reflecting the years gone by

and those still ahead.

Golden threads for all the memories,

that we share

and new ones that will come our way.

Silver threads to make the tapestry shine,

with so much love -

that keeps us together.

A tapestry of love,

that can last the years,

cast aside all the fears and tears.

Only smiles from now on

and while we grow old together -

let’s forever be young at heart.

Let the tapestry,

reflect the special love,

between you and me,

a reminder it will always be

and never will it unravel -

bound by our beating hearts.

        This one is another of your masterpieces, Gypsy. Brilliantly done! Interestingly enough, whenever I used that word, 'tapestry,' it is usually because I'm always weaving something great. I read one of my tapestry poems last night. Glory be!!
