The Power Of Love Poem by Almedia Knight-Oliver

The Power Of Love

Rating: 5.0

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids
Could this be some kind of omen or link?
I begin to hold onto his body, squeezing
extra warm breath on my neck and delighting
in the croon of his melodic breath
Beguiled by the charm of his dreamy eyes
my heart swelled and trembled like
the heart of a captive bird, just then
I knew my heart had been captured again!

At this time
fully pregnant with your love:
appetite increasing, throwing up,
nights devoid of sleep; and
ecstatic tears dropping in heap
bulging with pride, and lastly
stretching, contracting, then
gave birth to our love!

At long last
A love I can never forsake
I’m your lady…
Will you be my man for my sake?
I'll be at your command
Come into my paradise
I’ll love and cherish you
All of my life- -though
my body is frail, yet
our love stronger
I’m ready to commit to
the power of love.
Only as your wife can I hold on-
here’s my hand, here’s my heart…one love!
…. Forever…forever…forever… my soul mate!

Almedia S. Knight, January 2010
