The Picture

I have been wishing to compose a poem that would be as simple as I could complete this post with. I say complete because when I begin to write a poem it rarely ends as I intend it to be. I also often make it much more than what I wished it to be. Thus todays poem is far more simple than I have had in some time.

But I also wished that today’s poem would fit easy and revolve around a topic that so many have penned on with great success. I doubt that any of my writings would reach the standard that I hold as greats, whether one reads from Shakespeare or Dunne or any greats over time. BUT I kow this is not a bad start for this topic, that is LOVE.

It is wished that folks easily find that this poem is centered around a love that reached the deepest souls. Yet also a Love that spans oceans where a heart seeks to combine to find the ultimate goal, togetherness.

I do hope that you will enjoy this post and find this poem an entertainment or a useful read.

The Picture

I see your picture in a card,
Imagine but it’s not that hard.
Placed in a bottle of hope alone,
Stuck for time, no sound but a moan.

Regardless of faith or creed,
Still you planted an ever growing seed.
A light that carries me through,
In a sea of storms love grew.

Your love will calm the storms,
No words will fill ever growing norms.
Nor spaces hold the radiance that glows,
My heart beat no longer slows.

Placing love in a pocket waiting for you,
Seated quietly without now I’m blue.
Paper boats can never last,
When you are far yet for now past.

Gazing at a wilted rose I fear,
You may never wander o’er here.
I wander through the garden and wait,
Still Standing listening at the gate.

Stroll on by and hear this cry,
May this yet see set to apply.
Break the cords that bind me here,
When the day set that you appear.
