Love Do’s and Dont’s

Beautiful poetry. Please take time to read.

Love should not fit perfectly

like it’s a shoe.

It should roll in like a tidal wave

gaining strength with every wave

that comes on through.

Love is not perfect but

it does not want to place blame.

Love should never cause one

to ever bow their head in shame.

Love does not choose to

purposely harm another.

Love will never steal or take

from the arms of it’s lover.

Love will always stay strong

despite the things at hand.

That love will hold true if your

any kind of man.

Love will always provide comfort

and will help to see you through.

Love will still be there in the end

no matter what it is you may

have had to do.

Love will be understanding about

the things in life that may come

to pass.

Love will not hurt you and

then try to knock you on your ass.

Untitled Word of the Day Poem #30

Finally took the rings off
unshackled my heart
unbound my soul
I finally am letting you go.
I have waited…..
waited
waited 
waited
for you to return to me
only to realize
I hid my eyes with blindness
preferring to look
upon times of the past
with more fondness
than I do when I look to the future.
It was hard
the day they came to the house
platitudes mouthed
yet…..
only I was the one crying.
I sit upon the bed we once shared
no longer do the sheets
or your pillows
smell like you.
The tee shirt I wear
shorts I pull on
a tribute to my love for you.
I am sorry my darling
it is so hard to let go
to let you rest in peace.
I kneel before your tombstone
sorrow
tears settling into the earth
as I whisper…..
‘I have delayed this too long
good bye my love.
Memories
I will hold tight 
your ghost
I must lay to rest.
Never forget…..
Always and forever
I will love you.’
