Love

WINGS
 
The conflicts
have been fought
The compromises
made
Fears have been
conquered
The sacrifices
paid
Jealousies tossed aside
and
Arising
from the mend
A trusting Love
that's
uncondidtional
A partner
for lifes journey
A friendship bound together
forever without end..
Promises and Dreams
become decidedly shared
As they join their lives
together
They will come to appreciate
and accept
one another
For who they are
and what they are to be..
Hand in Hand
Side by Side
Letting go
and being set free
Sailing high
hearts soaring to the sky
Love gets it's wings..

LOVE'S GENTLE TIDE
 
The silent stars of midnight
dance across the sky,
the moon beams down upon us,
and there is only
 you and I,
Tangled in each others dreams
we escape into the night
as the glowing darkness
surrounds us
we hold each other tight.
Captured are our hearts
that we have no need to hide,
as we give our love
to each other
and seek it's
gentle tide..

YOU
 
Just when
I
was about to give up.
There you were,
sent to me...
Swept away
in your eyes
I feel like
I've known you
all my life.
My sense of self
returns,
you are the part of me
that was missing.
Fear subsides...
Is this what
happiness is?
You touch me
and my skin burns
A fire out of control,
a need so deep
it melts the ice
built up around my heart.
With a need to believe
You set me Free...
A friend and lover
all in one..
Safety in a touch
passion from your kiss
completes me,
As loneliness
becomes
a distant memory..

HAPPINESS
 
Laughter
with wings
floats through the air
fluttering by
with foolish grins
seen everywhere
happiness,
it seems,
has found it's
place here..
