A message from across the pond

It felt like Christmas 
on that late September night 
in the airport waiting anxiously 
for you to step off the plane.

I'm still recalling 
that first time I saw your face 
and all the things you ever said, 
they still fill me full of life.

And I wonder why, 
as I close my eyes to sleep, I still
feel happy, though our love is
forced to wait.

So I say your name 
out loud for all the stars to hear 
and for the wind to whisper to you,
everything will be alright.

And I hear your voice
in the morning rays of sunshine
breaking through the night storm
giving me courage

to face another day 
of being parted, having to hold
our hearts at bay until the time
our promises are made

    What a wonderful love poem, Thvia. I still remember the first time I saw my late husband's face. For me, it was love at first sight, but I had to wait quite a while for him to come around. It was worth the wait and yours will be too! Love, Carolyn

    Smile ~ Experiencing loves not so bright side but, time shall be the cure for most when, "True Love," is within their lives ~ "Beautiful Poem" &, I look forward to reading "Your Gifted Verse" again ~ "Much Love & Warmth Always to You &, All You Love," John! ~ Smile, "Have A Very Blessed & Beautiful Day 'Dear, Thvia Shetley,' Amid 'The Neverending Dreams of, Beautiful Love;'" Bye!:) ~

    Smile ~ "This Is So Very Soulfully Beautiful Dear Thvia Shetley; Bittersweet, From Whence The Honey Drips" ~ I am glad that I caught this amazing poe before checking out of here this early morn! And, I have been wishing to catch up unto "Your Splendors of Verse" I do believe for, I have read a few of "Your Wonderful Writes" &, "You Are A Gem Indeed!!!" ~ Although, It is never pleasant to find "Any Precious Heart & Soul" perhaps ~ ....Cont:)
