Ode To My Love - Poem by Patricia Clarke

I will never forget how much you meant to me,
I will never forget how you make my heart feel,
I will never forget how your eyes open up your soul to me,
I will never forget how you presence calms and reassures me.

I will never forget how much laughter you bring to me,
Or how your touch makes me weak.
I will never forget how easy you put my worries at ease,
And melt my sadness into glee.

I will never forget the softness of your embrace,
I will never forget the sureness of you care,
I will never forget how you bring love back my way,
And give me a second taste of its grace.

I promise to love you always,
As I watch you find your way through lives endless maze,
I will always define love by what we shared,
And ensure I never settle below that sphere.

    I've just read your beautiful poem. It's so nice!
    The title of the poem is apt and the note at the end is explanatory. But why did you call it 'forbidden love'?
    The feelings seem to be genuine. One can have these kind of feelings only when one is 'in love'.

    Thank you for reading my poem and commenting. I refer to it as forbidden love because while the love is genuine, it cannot be acted upon or enjoyed.
