The Power Of Love - Poem by Almedia Knight Oliver
The radiance morning sun
infusing the space and exposing
As I lay beside him, marveling aura
waltzing behind my eyelids…
could this be some kind of omen or link?
I begin to hold onto his body, squeezing
extra warm breath on my neck and delighting
in the croon of his melodic breath, and
Beguiled by the charm of his sensual eyes
my heart swelled and heart trembled like
the heart of a captive bird, then
I knew my heart had been captured again!
At this time
fully pregnant with your love:
appetite increasing, throwing up,
nights devoid of sleep; and
ecstatic tears dropping in heap.
bulging with pride, and lastly
stretching, contracting, then
gave birth to our love!
At long last
A love I can never forsake
I’m your lady…
Will you be my man for my sake?
I'll be at your command
Come into my paradise
I’ll love and cherish you
All of my life- -though
my body is frail, yet
our love stronger
I’m ready to commit to
the power of love.
Only as your wife can I hold on-
here’s my hand, here’s my heart…one love!
…. Forever…forever…forever… my soul mate!

(In dedication [to Claude H Oliver and Almedia S. Knight] of a heavenly love that has baffled both for five years)
