Peter Stavropoulos Poems

Love was.....

When 'if' lay between you and I
And 'never' seemed forever

What's a friendship? My Love.
It's when you promise me your company
And keep your promise.
It's when we joke about each other

How could fate have separated us?
I think of you and miss you.

I think of your warm and inviting smile

I have not forgotten you
For you have given me
Each blessed memory

Let us begin here
With a sentence
And the sentence is love.

I Thought about you
And lost my memory
In time
I could not remember

Doesn't it change
The course we've taken
If I say
I Love you?

Emptiness means little without you
Words alone cannot equal two
You meant little to me before we met
The world alone closed every sunset

Beauty lies
Within your eyes
I can't speak
Of what I seek

In the everlasting fragrance
Of the sound
Of your love

You are life and love and more.

You are earth and fire and more.

The education of the young mind
Took place
Behind closed doors
Because that mind -

Wish upon
Another's heart
Let her be happy
Let her be strong

Pure Love knows no rhythm no rhyme
It will always be the curve of your back
How you look at me innocent and out of time
Full of Love for what I lack

Each chance
A new belief
Something new
A heart's relief

Her hand is as soft as my touch
Her lips are as red as my heart
Nothing can compare as much
Pleasure for pleasure will surely start

Prepared to ridicule himself, this fool
Is guarded against the jibes
Of those he thinks less inclined to self-criticism.
How then is he to gauge his faults

Forever and forever
And always
Nothing can change
What's gone before

Not waiting to be hurt again
I hurt myself
In the most unjust way.

The Best Poem Of Peter Stavropoulos

...Love Was, Love Is, Love Will Be, Love Eternally

Love was.....

When 'if' lay between you and I
And 'never' seemed forever
I fell to earth in surrender
And you became the centre of my eye

Love is.....

When I pass by you accidentally
I grab a sense of your smile
When between us is distance measured by the mile
I grab a sense of our love immeasurably

Love will be.....

When I can no longer see to see
When I can no longer hear to hear
I know you will be near
Simply just you and me

Love eternally.....

When God granted us our wish finally
He put in us a throbbing heart
When it stops from this earth we will depart
But our Love will live eternally

(For S.....)

Mr. Stavropoulos, your poems continue to impart a wisdom that few people will ever achieve. Today, I discovered the poem, 'She, ' and it literally took my breath away. I recently discovered that my wife, the woman of my dreams, has been in one way or another around me since I was 13 years old! First, one of her school friends was the girlfriend of my best friend! Second, her Great Aunt almost enrolled her in my elementary school! And third, she went to a community college less than 5 minutes from where I grew up. When I read your poem, I was like, 'That kind of Love, that kind of destined Love that God lovingly prepares for us is real! ' I have experienced it first had. You are an amazing poet and I hope you consider writing a book one day. My all-time favorite poem from PoemHunter is 'The Certainty is You.' I love it! My wife of 5 years is now a fan of yours too. Don't ever stop writing. As long as God gives you breath to breathe keep writing!
