Fire Poems: 486 / 500

Rating: 5.0

First there was only darkness,
Life was chaos and sadness
Then you created light,
It made the world so bright
The light flames eternal fire,
A fire stoked by desire
The desire of your love,
A blessing from above
Love that gives fragrance,
Guided by your radiance
Your gentle fragrance stirred my heart,
And softly settled there

Love manifests in many ways. A gentle, lingering fragrance that imbues our life. A lovely poem, Ayman. All I have to do when I am feeling lonely or negative is to think about my children and my love for them and theirs for me and the fragrance sweetens my life and attitude

That is so wonderful, Kelly. I am closest to my dad too. There is nothing like a father in this world. Thank you my friend for sharing your feelings with me.
