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.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Lovely sentiments. I love the last verse. As the say if you let go of love if it was meant to be love will eventually return to you once more.

    Beautiful Phyllis, and so very true in its sentiment. I hope you find your love, and never have to let go. He would be so fortunate to share his love with such a kind soul. Enjoyed this.

    Love Sonnets from a truly longing heart that is open and ready to receive him. Your kindred spirit, who exists somewhere in time, leave your spirit open to him, he will find you. I wish you and him all the best when your souls finally unite as one. Beautiful words expressed from a vessel filled with LOVE.

      Thank you so much, John. Sonnets are my favorite type of poetry – I have to really think when I write them. Hmmm – is it that obvious?

    They are lovely sonnets that gave me positive feelings. And lord knows do we ever need those more than ever these days. The ancient Greeks would have called these sonnets “Beauties.”

    So beautiful and makes me wish to have those wonderful feelings again. I never dreamed to ever lose them but somehow life happens and love may not be lost but turned to simply caring but to always have that torch that burns through our veins and makes us walk on air….ah….your poem takes me there.
