a kiss from heaven

A kiss from heaven
A magical time
A true love is rare
But decidedly divine
My picture of love
Was carefully designed
Two parents and a home
That I could call mine
Shakespere and romance
Filled in some gaps
Passion and desires
Completed the map
But can we play 
With the cards we're delt
With time an enemy
And the beauty of someone else
How can I win love
With what I have
And the ideal of me loving
Makes people laugh
All the ledgends and stories
That I would use
To make myself something
Besides abused
Hope springs eternal
When it comes to love
As fools we dare to trust it
But it's love that we're made of
Love plays its game
Of hide and seek
And of all emotions
It's the most unique
Why we desire
This awesome power
When by it we are
Weakened by the hour
Upon inspection and
Deep reflection
Without it flesh
Is incomplete
The laws of attraction
Mixed with fashion
Or divide the strong
From the weak
Is love law or law love
While contenders ferociously 
compete
Long and lonely
This part of lifes journey
That so often leads
To dispare
It's not just physical but it's also
Finding someone who cares
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Did we find that sacred trust
Or are our memories
Filled with lust
And like our bodies to decay
And rust
Was our destination 
Heaven or bust

    John, I really love a poem, words, that brings tears to my eyes, like this one of yours did. The thoughts expressed and feelings shared in this piece are so authentic. It spoke right to my heart. "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust" and "decidedly divine." I loved it. Thank you, Cynthia

    Love plays games with us and shows us up as fools. An elegant write, John. By the by, I see you've removed some of your poems. I'm sure you had good reason but let me also add that I'm disappointed. If you remove this one I'll have your hide. Good one, my friend. Licia :-)

    A very intricate and thought provoking piece filled with truth and wisdom. Thanks ever so much for your gracious comment on my post, This Side of Love. You honor me...I'm greatly touched. Please, reveal to me the secret of your full name! Is that the mark of approval? I have commented back on your post on my poem.
