This poem is for my book that I am working on (all fiction don’t worry!)
Pieces of the Circle
True love can’t be forgotten
though years have hid it’s flame~
Lost love held inside of me
without shelter or a name
Finding me in my despair,
weary from the pain
so ready for young love
to be restored for me again
We hesitated in mid air
like a note sung by a singer~
The scent of love we used to know
somehow made us stop and linger~
Did we understand the cost
of choosing to stay or close the door?
Did we deserve to take our turn
and even ask for more?
The love inside of me grew until
I thought that I would burst
I feared that what I held dear,
by my loved ones would be cursed
The past has met the present
like waves upon the sand~
The foundation was never ready
for us to step on or to stand
We were caught inside a love story
with all the tragedy and pain
No one would ever accept our love
or allow it to remain,
like Romeo and Juliet,
like Elizabeth and Browning.
Our love was like a soaring sea
as we struggled to keep from drowning.
God became our rescuer,
The One who calms the seas.
The One who knows all of our tomorrows,
and what they all will be.
And so we rest in HIM
and put us in His care
And when we I look for true love…
I know I’ll find Him there.
