My Devotion - Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

If pain were your compassion
And tears the joy I had.
If tormenting me became your life
And my suffering made you glad.

Were hard drugs your slow undoing,
Deceit your calling card.
If your heart was bound in sorrow
And your passions frozen hard.

Were your touch not soft or gentle,
Your kiss both cold and blue.
And your arms reserved for strangers
on some distant avenue.

If time forgot to soothe my pain
And you just walked away.
And if you chose another heart
On our solemn wedding day.

It may be too much sorrow
And much too many tears.
But it's not enough to quell my love
My devotion through the years.

    the lines are touching and are penned from heart...yes there are moments of pain and gloominess but such are the ways of life...the credit lies in how we get through them...sooner the better.. (Report)Reply

    Unconditional loving weathers the storms of real life without hiding behind rosy glasses. Your poem lyrically and honestly expresses this sort of quality loving that inspires and heartens the reader. Jim's right. You are the real McCoy. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply

    This is emotionally powerful Mr Wolfe, and like all your poems, very well constructed. The content isn't compromised at all... It speaks of love abiding and deep with great persuasion and the convinced reader is moved my such work.. as was I.. You are the real McCoy sir. (Report)Reply
