...Love Was, Love Is, Love Will Be, Love Eternally - Poem by Peter Stavropoulos (Best Love Poems)

Love was.....

When 'if' lay between you and I
And 'never' seemed forever
I fell to earth in surrender
And you became the centre of my eye

Love is.....

When I pass by you accidentally
I grab a sense of your smile
When between us is distance measured by the mile
I grab a sense of our love immeasurably

Love will be.....

When I can no longer see to see
When I can no longer hear to hear
I know you will be near
Simply just you and me

Love eternally.....

When God granted us our wish finally
He put in us a throbbing heart
When it stops from this earth we will depart
But our Love will live eternally


(For S.....)

    Really nice, but I must say, when I saw the 'fall to Earth' line I thought I was in for something more surprisingly sinister - but you didn't go there.
    Cheers
    Here is my love poem. I tried using the Raven's challenging rhyme pattern: http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/love-is-105/

    Even though it didn't quite fit, the result was good enough to inspire me to move on to my second (and still my best work: SUNRISE ON THE MOUNT) : http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/sunrise-on-the-mount/ (Report) Reply

    Perception of essence, beginning of love - creditably presented. (Report) Reply
