#RomanticTuesday: Until The End of Days 

The end of days isn’t the end of time

The end of days is life without you

Devoted hearts devoted to truths we share

We love

With all our being has to give 

We love

Clocks surmise the time for man

God surmises the time of man

Each day I do not lessen my appreciation of you

Your glow never demishes 

We are thankful for days that give us life together 

We do not linger on life without the other 

Those thoughts tucked away safely 

Today is what we have 

A house of straw, a house of wood, a house of bricks

Home is You and I 

Home is Us

Until the end of days

We love

#RomanticTuesday: Seasons Gone By

pexels-photo-404674

As the seasons go by

From the snowflakes to the drops of rain

From spring’s reawakening to blazing summer sun

My appreciation of you deepens

*

Seasons gone by

This well of love never dries up

Complacency kills the heart

So I love you stronger

Not allowing a day to go to waste

Or take for the granted the sound of your heart beating

Thoughts of a last embrace, a last kiss, a last touch

Fuel my desire to hold you longer and let your essence linger in my heart

Sometimes words get the best of me as my expressiveness unfolds

It’s alright, love should always stir the soul

I remember the last photo of you I looked at

And I remember what life was like before you

Seasons gone by

This well of love never dries up

Only deepening that much more

Romantic Tuesday: Yes, I Miss You 

“so I wait for you like a lonely house
till you will see me again and live in me.
Till then my windows ache.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Of course the heart will ache

It will bend and it will stretch

It will expand and contract

Close itself off from the world

And continue to unfold in the new day

*

Yes, I miss you

I confess

As I make facial gestures

Which suggest the sorrow as such

It comes with the territory

Love without boundaries

Yes, I miss you

The abyss is there

I stare but not dive in

Hanging on to every thread

Time feels dead

But this is the part of the road we must tread

Sometimes

Yes, I miss you

I confess

Romantic Tuesday: Every Long Day

pexels-photo-58572

When words do not suffice

I hope my actions speak clearly enough

To express love in its fullest

Every time our eyes meet, you’ll see it

In every embrace, you’ll feel it

*

Marking days

Turning the page on the calendar

Months changing with the seasons

Every long day apart

Adds a longer day together on the end

Mind not on a path or plan

Mind on clasping hands and never letting go

Leaving this temporary flow and entering a permanent one

Understanding what we feel

The realities that come with real love

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

*
