GREENWOLFE 1962

Blessed Love

We met as children long ago.
I can't recall the day.
I was too young to notice then,
It must have been at play.

It's funny how it came to be.
Unnatural, I guess.
God must have just got up one day
In search of souls to bless.

He surely found us oh so young,
But I guess, just in time;
For us to start our journey off
With friendship so sublime.

Soon it made a love affair
Just as we came of age.
Your diary expressed it well,
My name on every page.

As we came of age we vowed
To wed forever more.
Who knew we'd ever live so long
Or what life had in store.

We had three kids and lost but one,
The sadness of our life.
I guess we had the best of things,
Without much pain or strife.

And as our children moved away,
We did then as we should.
We spent our time in doing things
We always wished we could.

The time just seemed to pass away
Almost before we knew.
But all I know is what there was,
I spent in loving you.

I know you did as well my love,
It showed in many ways;
The way you always touched my arm
And held your loving gaze.

Yes, it's funny how it came to be,
And how it is somehow.
We never have done things alone.
At least, until right now.

We've been as one so very long,
How can we be apart?
And how will it continue on,
The beating of my heart?

I hope that God may soon arise
As He did once before.
And bless our souls just one last time
By calling home one more.

    An exquisite write, filled with love, happiness and sad moments. All happens for a reason, even though we may not understand it at the time. Stunning write.

    A soul shifter. Love haply transcends all bondaries of time and space of material and non-material. Another heart felt piece; beautifully written.

    This is beautiful, and so moving. A delightful poem and a real treat to read. I wrote quite a few in a similar vein when my husband died, it was very therapeutic and helped me to come through the grief.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    This is to touching, it really is an appropriate title for it. A Blessed Love indeed. Please keep wriring. I cant imagine poetry being so narrow that there would be no room for different forms of writing experiences, thoughts, blessings and so many other things, in verse.

    I have known those who met and loved this way and I envy that kind of love. D o not know on whom you base your poem but it is very well stated and versed. My own parents died three weeks apart. Mom worried about Dad dying of cancer went first from heart attack and then Dad missing her died three weeks later. Mother's Day, Memorial Day. Memories aboung.
    Thank you for verse.
    Susan

    Very sad poem.Was the last stanza about the Rapture? I hope you aren't too depressed.When it is our time to be called home then we go.Heaven is beautiful-I glimpsed it in 1980 (NDE) ....but you can only go there when that gift called Life runs its natural course.

    Recognising blessings is very important...I hope you have many more.Nice rhyme! ! ! ! ! ! Good flow and keep on expressing yourself through your own unique poetic voice! ! ! ! ! !

    Very nicely done, Wolfey. A beautiful and tender tribute to the love of your life. Not sure about that last line, but hopefully you're not going anywhere soon. Kudos!
