Sonnet.1/Looking for Love


Where are you oh! my love, oh! my love?
I have searched every corner every cove
Have spent my life waiting, anticipating
Just to get a very first glimpse of you

You're the star that lights up the ebony skies
The reflection of the moon beams in my eyes
Oh! my love my love, words can never be enough
To tell you how much I long to be a part of thee

Finally, at last I have found a love so true
A love that was only meant just for me and you
I've looked for love in all the right places
Your love has solely filled all the empty spaces

You came knocking and gladly I opened the door
My love, oh! my love, having to search for you no more

    The search for love and then sustaining it once found is always the trick, nice happy ending. (Report) Reply

    Dear Patricia, Love is magical and when it is enduring it is the best thing in life. I agree with the sentiments in your romantic poem. I don't have much time to comment because it hurts my eyes to be on the computer for any length of time, but just wanted you to know I received your kind comments about my poetry and I thank you very much. I also watch my little year and half old granddaughter full time, so poetry is taking a back seat right now. Blessings, Lotus (Report) Reply

    The quest & anxiety for love were detailed so nicely concluding the poem with a delight after finding the love. It's lovely in deed (Report) Reply

    Looking for love in all the right places. A glorious and uplifting sonnet to love. Take a bow.

    'Finally, at last I have found a love so true
    A love that was meant just for me and for you'

    The self satisfied tone of having found your true love is ringing loud in these lines. So you both are now two souls with a single thought and two hearts that beats as one! A beautiful love sonnet! ! (Report) Reply
