~♥ O Dearest Love *


O Dearest Love
Wherever you are walking
My heart is there,
My dreams are by your side.
Since you've been gone
The sun no longer rises
In blazing joy
To meet the coming day.
My heart will wait
In faith through all your wanderings
Until your feet
Shall lead you to my door.
You'll come to me
Across the years of longing -
Here in my arms
Your wanderings will end.
A hearth, a home
Will capture all your dreamings.
O Dearest Love
There is no day till then.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

*Written to the tune of 'Danny Boy'
Poets start out to write a poem in a certain time-frame and during the construction of the poem the time-frame gets blurred. This is written to Maurice, of course. The 'Wherever' is in a parallel time-frame of the future. A future life in a paradise earth.

    I've loved a hundred women beneath a million stars, yet never called one Venus or ever been a Mars, but if I was maybe sixty years younger I'd surely be tempted to up roots and come alookin' eh? From start to finish the verse was impeccable and evocative. Thank you for the tonic. Hugznstuff. (Report) Reply

    Sublime! Everlasting love never separated in the spirit, always together, the flesh longing for its embrace of the dear one. Living eternally as one in the sweetest embrace. Adeline, your writing is incredibly beautiful and speaks to the core. Thank you! Kasia (Report) Reply

    I remember this poem, I read it the same day it was posted, and loved it very much, but by those times I had not much courage to post a comment. Glad I found it again, much confident now, three years later I shall give all my thanks for this wonderful share. (Report) Reply

    And if you write Poems in the evening affect the word selection. But Love Poems must be written in the morning or in the free time, noon time maybe. (Report) Reply

    This fine poem was accompanied by a background tune in my head and certainly added another level of depth to the experience. (Report) Reply

    'Not all who wander are lost', as J. R. R. Tolkien says.
    Impressive writing, Adeline, full of love, desperation and hope.
    P.S. Two parallel lines cross each other – in the dimension of love.) (Report) Reply
