A Lifetime of Love

A Lifetime of Love

Life is a tapestry of love
kiss, held, becoming
spun in circles by the tender mother hand upon belly
looped in arms that spin us in dancing circles
while our feet walk joy across the floor
run fear through the obstacle course
jump hope to hope as it streams faster than rapids
climbing trust over rocky ridges that direct the pathway
threading us to him, her, them, us, and those unknown
smiles, frowns, hugs and letting goes that leave us
alone, companioned, child, friend, lover, parent, young
and just as suddenly … old
we have holes filled with unstolen memories
pockets of treasured tastes, smells, sights, sound and holding tightly
scar tissues laden with healing kisses landscape the indomitable form
grasp marks hold our soul to earth
blossoms cover favored old foot prints and falls become calm lakes to drink one wise
a thread laces each breath into a song
blanketing the aged face with smiling maps of life well lived
a lifetime of love is warmer than the sun on the bird’s wing
that never flies away with truths of forever promises.

Nice. In the end, all we have left are memories!

Can't believe I didn't comment on this the first time I saw it.
It's beautiful Janice and is now up there alongside Kahlil Gibran's work as one of my favourite ever love poems.
For me its positive perspective makes it even more valuable than Gibran's work........

Dear Janice,

what an exquisite poem you have written here. A lifetime of love is a rare gift. You are blessed.

You were most beautifully inspired.

Love,

I am mastered totally by Love.
