Love Has No Expiry Date. - Poem by Marie Shine

Though it is summer
the cold storms of winter
have blown into my heart
chilling me to the core

There is no warmth in the
summer sun for me
my heart is numb
unable to feel anymore

I sit alone with my memories
bitter-sweet in taste; my fate
to realise, unexpectedly,
that love has no expiry date

    I have been hit-and-miss and AWOL from Poem Hunters for quite some time but are you AWOL as well, Marie? ? ? I miss seeing your delightful comments and I don't see any fresh ones on any of the poets I drop in on occasionally... so I hope all is well with you and that we will see you again soon.

    Love has broadness and greatness. Love is a vast topic and even if we define this for infinite time this will never end. Love is a beautiful dazzling mirror to give unlimited reflection of self shadow. A great-grandmother's love is beautifully reflected in the mirror of relationship of family. A great-grand child dwells getting fortunate affection of a great-grandmother and getting greatest grace of God. Such a great-grand child is great reflection of family mirror. (Report)Reply

    Indeed, love has no expiry date, it lives a long long life, it may go through rough patch like moon passing through the clouds yet it appears and shines again like Marie Shine. Loved it 10+++ (Report)Reply

    Love manifests its many forms and exists. That is why this does nor expire at all. When we feel Divine love, we feel God's existence. Because, God ever protects us and gives this power of love. We feel eternal essence of love in conquered mind. In silence when we sit, we feel deeper memories gained earlier. Every lovable memory shines with dignity of Divine touch. Love has great power that comes from God. This world perceives wonderful motivational power of Love. (Report)Reply

    When I read your poem again and again I feel love's power in both material world and Divine world. In this world all relationships are built basing upon love only. Where there is love there we feel existence of heaven. This is truly said that when there is love among father and mother, wife and husband, between son and father and grandfather and grandmother and within all of all family members, then this family is a purely paradise.Love is golden love.

    A perfection reflection beholds God's tenderness and grace. We feel your eagerness and joy becoming fortunate great-grandmother by God's grace. Welcoming new child is great news. Love and affection bloom as flowers. She will grow like moon and one day seeing the precious picture will recognize her great-grandmother. Her happiest memory is treasured with time. (Report)Reply

    Becoming a great-grandmother is fortunate news. On the same day you have heard good news being free from suffering. Dual gifts God has given. Moment of happiness explores seeing mirror reflection. Great-granddaughter smiles sitting in your lap and you see and feel your mother in memory. Same reflection is witnessed by God's grace. We are sending our bless and best wishes to your great-grandchild and all family remembers. We are glad seeing your picture. (Report)Reply
