Love Nest - Poem by Jim Yerman

I recently ran across a list Deborah and I created long ago
It contained the dreams for our perfect house...our ideal bungalow.

We called it our North Carolina Love Nest and it was to be our creed
For we thought, on this paper, we listed everything we'd need.

Everything to keep us contented, our personal honeycomb
Everything our minds could think of...to make a happy home.

We were young and innocent back then...and our dreams...unlimited and grand
But despite our best intentions...life didn't go the way we planned.

You see we never built our dream house...but I still consider myself blessed
Because we realized...if we have love...it doesn't matter where we nest.

Topic(s) of this poem: happiness, love

    Love is the key to happy life.A house/Home is not built of concrete or cement.It is built up on the beautiful relationship we have through a gel called love.Home is where love is.Your poem nicely reflects this philosophy- - -

    You see we never built our dream house...but I still consider myself blessed
    Because we realized...if we have love...it doesn't matter where we nest.

    Nice one... very good description...10

    Home permanent home

    Love demands one permanent refuge
    And it is not desire huge
    It gets reality
    And makes smooth real journey
