Eternal Love


I love you when you are near.
As seaman love the morning clear.

I love you still when your far away.
As a potter loves the supple clay.

I love you blindly without regret.
Like a sweet sonata in a loving duet.

I love you more than I have shown.
In selfish ways I now condone.

I love you best when nights are scented.
With pillows damp and souls contented.

I love you lavish,
Like a poet loves his quill.

And when you say you tire of me,
I know I'll love you still.

Poem of the Day

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
