Uriah Hamilton

Because You Have Given Me Love - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

We’re sauntering slowly
In the exciting evening
Exchanging a mystical kiss
Soft moonlight avenue bliss;
I turn to you when the world is cruel,
And you make everything
Exhilarating and new,
You pull me through
Periods of depression
Unanswered questions,
A life bogged down
In unhappy confusion.

I can make it through
Any falling apart scene
That mysterious forces
Have scripted for me,
I can shake off emotional debris
That crumbling walls of loneliness
Have left on me
Because you have given me love
That survives and thrives
In the midst of every despairing sadness.

    Epic. This just says it all. Those of us who have experienced the real joy and comfort of absolute love will relate one hundred per cent to what you write so masterfully. Those of us who have lost it will relate one hundred and one per cent.... this is one I will read time and time again. Thank you. t x (Report)Reply

    I do like the phrase 'what mysterious forces/ have scripted for me.... ' as if you are sent through life by the forces and guided by your love. (Report)Reply

    I liked this poem very much, especially the last three lines of it. And I really admire the positive frame of your mind, the frame which sometimes brings new horizons of thinking. Yet, don't you think art matters? And it doesn't mean that I am thinking low of the charisma of art you have used in the poem; rather I am spellbound by your positivity and art. (Report)Reply

    the words so lovely and profound
    that moment
    when the heart
    has finally found
    even if seemingly
    this tumbling world
    has caught the soul
    up in its confusion
    not so!
    the words here
    crystal clear
    like stars
    brought into the heart
    burning with the
    pure light of love
    a great uplifting poem
    the reader
    just happy to read the
    glorious words
    Thank you for giving this
    to those swallowed up in dim
    dark caves
