Love Sonnets ~
As I look back at love over my life,
Ere my emotions were quiet and calm,
I see the days for my soul held no balm,
To soothe my weary mind and ease the strife.
Alone now, I am ready for the one
I can cherish with all my heart and soul.
Ahead on my path, he can make me whole.
I will walk with him, dreary days or sun.
Let me not fear what I have just begun.
I have opened my heart for one last time.
Wither it stays just friends or something more,
My love will only grow and will become
More precious each day to me, so sublime.
And surely be as no other before.
Love is knowing when to let go ~
From whence do they come, unbidden and shunned?
Dreams of seeking solace, and peace from fears.
Fears that leave me shaking, need to overcome,
This feeling of oneness, drowning in tears.
Love I sought, followed a path of sun light,
Knew the one I could walk with all my days,
Share my life with, to be there day and night.
Care for him deeply and know his many ways.
Give to him the true love he so longs for.
Let myself be loved and embrace the glow
Of a life together, not asking more
Than what he can give with his heart and soul.
Love him more each day, leave if I must, for
Now I see, love is knowing when to let go.
