    My Love

    My Love



    I didn’t see

    The approaching storm

    I carried on, remaining,

    In perfect form

    Ignoring all that was before me

    Once the sky opened

    It drenched my heart so…

    I was flooded with emotions

    Leaving me drowning

    I became somewhat numb

    In the distance,

    I could see the clouds clearing

    But, I didn’t advance

    For my heart was fearing

    What I would see

    To face the facts

    In front of my eyes

    Head on…

    Should have seen what I had done

    I became broken

    Unable to speak

    Unable to breathe or

    So it seems

    As everything I hoped

    Sought out..

    And would dream…

    My reality, bursting

    At it’s seams

    All of my knowing

    Once the truth hit me…

    With no consolation 

    I looked for relief,

    Finding it only

    In your eyes-

    Feeling warmth from your love

    Despite my disguise

    Now that the flood

    Has receded

    This storm has passed

    I know we may face many..

    But, the love in our hearts

    Shall always last

    For we shall

    See it through

    As I always waited

    In my garden

    For my one true love

    My dear,

    Could this be you?

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
