B() |() |() This Poem Was Written On True Love/B - Poem by Annie Cordelia Adams

you'd never know
how my heart trembled
when in the night
you spoke to me

though i could not see you
could not watch your lips
move to speak
in the hours of the night

hold my hand gently
i'll touch my face to yours
a fire burns quietly
inside these doors

in the morning
when the sun rises
the love we share
is in perfect paint

if i could but sing it to you
or whisper as the elves
if i could but play it for you
on the piano of life's Love

i'd whisper tenderly
into the shadow of your soul
and hope the clouds would clear
so that i might wish upon that star
up so high, and,
up so far
that you would be always here, to hold

    lovely words, at first the title caught my eye, the poem was equally great, true love expressed in true words, great work :) (Report) Reply
