A Quiet Love.. - Poem by Norman Mukwakwami

There is a love that does not die
A love that whispers
A small still voice
Easily ignored
Forgetten in the rush of infatuation
Remembered,
In the stillness of infatuation's inevitable disappointment.

There is a love that aches
A dull pain
As everlasting as the stars
In happiness, easily forgotten
In sorrow, magnified

This love is a gurgling stream
A midsummer night's breeze
A twinkling star.
Beautiful,
Yet never arresting attention.

    you surely are a poet,
    stylish and eloquent yet concise
    and never over done.
    .......the way I would like to write
