Then There Was Love

Life was a dark and empty place – No color filled my world – Only shadows and promises Of springtime blooms, uncurled. Some things I can remember well – Like spring recalls the dove. First there was me, then there was you – And then, yes then, there was love. A hope of love, inside my soul Cried out to be set free. Until you filled my empty life I had no place to be. I had no place to sing my song – No one to share my love. You stepped into my empty heart – And then, yes then, there was love. Love sweetened all the bitterness. Love conquered all the wrongs. Love brought me hope and tenderness. Love authored all my songs. I held a hope inside of me – As skies hold stars above. You replaced hope with reality – And then, yes then, there was love.

    Love does bring life and warmth where there is darkness. Like sunshine on a cloudy day! This poem flows very nicely, and the rhymes are perfect. Another beautiful poem by you, Jake!...Thank you for the kind comments, as always.
