The Secret Of Love........ - Poem by Vijayan Girija

The secret of love is love itself…….
as it exudes a fragrance,
however hidden it may be……..!
It gives out as a flicker of light behind the eyes;
a smile suppressed behind the lips;
a caress on your throbbing wound;
a caring word, soothing your woes,
a loving grasp of your finger tight…….
And you cannot miss it, if it is there!

I have a strange encounter with love;
its memory still mesmerizes me,
though long years have passed……

After a critical operation
and five days in ventilator,
the moment when my husband recognized me
with swollen eyes, bandaged head
and unsteady words….
I then knew what love is…….
It's a spring in the heart,
which sometimes wells up in the eyes….
and a feeling beyond words…………

    An insight depiction of might feeling of love - a spiritual experience and voyage of pure bliss that affects one profoundly, well articulated and nicely penned in poetic diction with conviction. Lovely romantic poem subtly written from the heart. Thanks for sharing Girija. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
