Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling

when the shadows fall far beneath the cradle, too far for the wind to blow, I feel the chill somewhere in the night- clammy, it approaches and calmly I sigh; how far does the world walk away, or run in needed time? I don’t know much, but there will always be a pillow for me in your bed, silk blanket folded open waiting for me like tomorrow; and there will always be room for me in your arms, room like heaven, and after I have entered, nothing else matters, nothing but the warmth felt; there will always be a kiss waiting for me on your lips, and when your move is made…so is my day- when the shadows fall beneath the cradle, I feel the change, running nowhere and everywhere brought me to the mirror again, same old face, same old me, all I see is opaque- but other flowers died, and little girls have cried and I take one more sigh and know there is always room on your chest for my head; always a shirt on you to catch my tears always a hand to run through my hair always a voice to whisper your heart I have been blessed to have your wings carry me, through all that they have- there will always be love for you… deep within me
*written to my boyfriend (now hubby) 2 years into our relationship. I was 18 when I wrote this, and it is 21 years later and I am still writing poems to my sweetheart. I know he will read this and remember when I gave this to him. It was typed on a typewriter that I loved to use back then.

Wow this took my breath! It was beyond beautiful and for you to still be writing for the man you love with the depth that this poem held is nothing short of amazing! You are so very lucky as is he and a love like that is so very special! You blow me away knowing that this kind of love still exists out there!;) makes me truly believe in what I have written about and you have so elegantly! I am in awe!Thank you for that touching and real love you allowed us to peek into ;)

This is a special write, for a special person, you have a gift Laura, you have grown as a writer, but, my, my, this was a wonderful foundation from which to build. Wish I could have written so beautifully 20 years ago!

I wish I knew back then my gift could have taken me places. I should have went to college for writing, or even took classes to improve. But this is how God wanted my life to turn out. Just a mom and wife- who writes and loves her creativity. Thank you dear John very much :)-luloo

Incredibly beautiful and heart touching. Your poem written 21 years ago is still as beautiful as the day you wrote it because the love still blooms in the garden of your heart. Incredibly beautiful Lu loo.
