Romantic Tuesday: Symbolic

pexels-photo-256738

We accepted this gift of love

And locked it in

Our gift from God

You and I

Through every calm and storm

God making a way

In each and every day we are One

Honoring one another through Our love

Thankful to give and receive

Each blessed to have the other

Romantic Tuesday: The Next Level

pexels-photo-206544

We’ve come this far

Not to turn back

Forming a new structure to this life

“What would I do without?”

Those houses of glass have shattered

Straw hearts have blown away

Along this path we found common ground

*

Can we take another step?

Reach another level?

A new plateau

Love is getting stronger

Never fading

*

Embracing the day

Embracing each other

Thankful for another day

To be a part of one another

Counting blessings, fingers entwined

Confessing words, hearts stirred up

“Without you, I’ve got nothing”

*

Can we take another step

Reach another level

A new plateau

Love is getting stronger

Never fading

*

Silence in the evening

Listen closely

And you’ll hear a heart beating

Praying past the midnight moon

Praying with the dawning sun

We’ve come this far

Not to turn back

Love is getting stronger

Only turning someday

Into one day .

*

Can we take another step?

A new plateau

Is waiting

Romantic Tuesday: I Hope You Understand

pen-filler-leave-communication-163014

Did I say what I wanted to say?

Not withhold words from you in any way

*

Express how I felt with a gentle touch

With a soft caress demonstrating just how much

*

No matter how the world expands

Never letting loose of your hand

*

Did I give you my voice, when it you needed to hear?

I hope I have never withdrawn from you or disappeared

*

In this life I understand

In this life I am just a man

In the life I hope you understand

In this life with you I’ll always stand

*

Were my arms strong enough to make you feel secure?

Assuring you that through it all we would endure

*

I want you to know that it’s not about me

In this love there is always a capitalized WE

*

Did I give you authenticity today?

Not nothing other than my true face

*

Leaving nothing to chance or regret

Loving you as if it is the first time we’ve met

*

In this life I understand

In this life I am just a man

In the life I hope you understand

In this life with you I’ll always stand

Romantic Tuesday: The Whole of This Life

pexels-photo-70737

In the microcosm of this moment

The whole of this life together is expressed

Just being together, this is all we ever wanted

Just to be together, constructing a life together

Love is the foundation, core, and guide from which we build

*

The lake is still

There is a calm that rests around us

With your head on my shoulder, I am at peace

The sun sits beautifully on the lake’s surface

The soft grass cushions the weight of our bodies

Love cushions the weight of our hearts

*

Here we are

Sharing this moment

A microcosm of the bigger picture

You and I

Being together

As One

Love centered firm at the core

Romantic Tuesday: Photogenic

girl-1721438_1280

Adjusting the lens

to bring you into a clearer focus

your smile causes the lens to blush

overwhelmed by your lush tones

we sit for a spell

casting out thoughts and reeling in dreams

you lean up closer against me

“how can one be so deserving,” I think to myself

this is not the fortune of serendipity

you and I know we belong together

you have a way of bringing out the light in everything

I lean up closer against you

the life around us has never been so bright

it shows in all we say and do

plus in all the wonderful photos of you

Romantic Tuesday: Magnitude

tourists-1938184_640

How big is the world compared to love?

My world continues to expand each day with you

We revolve around the sun in the constant presence of light

The days seem to not contain enough time and space

So much to say and express

Our only quest is togetherness

To love as openly and fully as we can

Our hands holding the ends of a ribbon as we tie a bow around

what we have found

There is nothing more priceless or precious

We wave to the moon each night

Hoping this “good night” will be the last apart

I wait for the morning in which we awake and I see the sun

rising in your eyes

It is then perhaps, I will fully understand the magnitude of our love
