Love's Everlasting Endurance - Poem by Bill Darrah

'Let her want with me be in creating my need to express
the love I share-love's intimacy can only adequately give.'

I couldn't even hear my heart beat.
Now I know what I was cheating
Was the part of my being
That was so unbelieving
Of the love that blocked my seeing
The lonely part of my heart she was relieving
Through the smile of every greeting
Like while we were eating
And all the times of unexpected meeting
When we stopped and stared intriguingly
As if we had perfected the incredible feat
That saved the world to retreat
To the love that would ultimately entreat
Every single human being
To hear the heart constantly beating
As feeling keeps on repeating
The love that refuses to retreat completely.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired by Tiffany, my 1st true love,4 months after our relationship ended that started December 16,2000. After I composed and recited my 'Epiphany of Tiffany' poem to Tiffany over the phone one month after our relationship I was motivated by her brief love to write 'Love's Everlasting Endurance' as a way of continuing my expressions of love for Tiffany even though they could no longer be well received by Tiffany for reasons undeclared by her, thus leaving me clueless as to how I was to forget my strong feelings for Tiffany when I didn't want to. 'Love's Everlasting Endurance' poem gave me the ability and freedom to never let go of those incredibly fulfilling feelings Tiffany gave to me since true love should never be forgotten- only extended or expressed in every direction and angle of deep significance for those people who want to stay in love with you forever! !
