A Gift Of Love - Poem by Cindy Howard

A Gift of Love

We had a gift
We thought would last
Never thought
It would leave so fast

That spell, that gift
Was brilliant to see
A feeling of freedom
Which set us free

We knew with a glance
What the other felt
And without pause
With it we soon dealt

It was all 5 senses
And then some more
A gift from God
Which ran through our core

That spell, this gift
With words can not be written
Once in a lifetime
This bug has bitten

With love, a gift
A power so strong
And with this gift
Nothing goes wrong

Somehow along
Life's misguided way
Our gift was lost
It has gone a stray

A guide we now need
To help us through
To find this gift
Which we both once knew

This spell, this gift
Is stronger then time
If it is lost
It would be a true crime

Our lives and paths
Will cross again someday
Let God help us
For this we both pray

May our gift stay strong
And ever grow
Let it shine a light
For all life to know
