You Simply Know


So what really is love
No need to ponder the answer
When you simply know by the way
Love becomes the companion to your heart
Inhabits your mind when you’re apart
Makes you smile for no particular reason
Creates twangs of yearning during short absences
Coats you with hope and longing
Rolls you in brown sugar and butter
Until you are baked in ultimate desire
To share this recipe with your beloved
And meld together like peas and carrots
In your own casserole of life
That no one else may truly understand
But it simply does not matter because
No need to ponder the answer
When you simply know by the way
Love becomes the companion to your heart

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
