To be one

I love

The steady beat of your heart

For you are

A face captured briefly in a curl behind glass

Our hearts

Hands raised and pressed

The silver of us tendered

Forged in spring water

Beyond the sylphing migration of pike

Green and lean, leaping beyond our lure

Water sparkling like mermaids sleeves

If I could rebirth us before

Pain stole years, adding creases to our brow

I’d give you the peace of a sanctuary of love

Ebbing in the forest, a slow unfolding envelope

Protector against harshness, for it is only you

Stirs in me a deep smile, I take your hand

In this and all parallel universes where, if we stay still

They go ahead, just me and you, in replication

To never end, a long string of amber attachment

Curling toward the sun, I see no beginning

We have known the other by our soul, in all walks of time

Against the odds, it is us who returns, always and again

To be one

  1. To find a love that is LOVE is so rare, but it’s definitely a beautiful thing.

    These lines:

    “Green and lean, leaping beyond our lure

    Water sparkling like mermaids sleeves

    If I could rebirth us before

    Pain stole years, adding creases to our brow

    I’d give you the peace of a sanctuary of love

    Ebbing in the forest, a slow unfolding envelope”

    What an exceptional gift they are. This whole poem is a reflection of enchantment and beauty.

  2. Love outside of time, independent of space, and an augurie of innocence in its deep knowledge. These lines came to mind from Auguries of Innocence by William Blake.

    “To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour”

    That sort of love.

  3. Deeply touching and beautiful.
    “when love holds you
    nothing else can break you
    not even yourself” written by Gina of SingleDust

  4. To find love. Real love. Finally as far as I’m concerned.
    Not long ago, my children asked me “was it love at first sight?”
    I must say it was, even if I didn’t know it at the time.
    As I told a friend later on, when I talked about him: he touches my soul. And it is a wonderful feeling!
    I love that quote “when love holds you, nothing else can break you, not even yourself”
    This is so true for me. And I’m so grateful! Because I was unknowingly (still am to some extent) working very hard at breaking myself!

    (You may not know, but he’s been in my life before, in very different circumstances. About 5 centuries ago, in one of those parallel universes 😊)
