When Did You Last Feel Loved?


When did you last feel loved?
Was it while touring the fresh garden
Or out driving on a cool summer night?
Was it in watching the leaves change color
Or the season of giving and receiving?

When did you last feel loved?
Was it when you heard his voice on the line
Or when you closed your eyes to see his face?
Was it when he took your hand in his as you walked along the beach
Or at night when he held you in a warm embrace?

Without question,
Love is an inexplicable phenomenon.
We can't see it, yet we feel it.
We don't look for it, yet it always finds us.

I last felt loved when I awoke
To his eyes staring back at me,
His arms holding me close,
Red and white roses in a vase on the nightstand,
And a tender kiss.

Without question,
Love changes everything.
We can't see it, yet we feel it.
We don't rely on it, yet we live for it.

When did you last feel loved?

    This is a beautiful poem. Very succinct. Has a clear outline and moves in a slow rhythm where much thought has been put into it. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
