Be patient my heart

I have no words to use that can define,
this task so tough to find my lover's name.
In hope, I wait for my soul to refine,
before my heart becomes old with this game.

This language they call love has no restraint,
yet, still I search for tongue which echoes mine.
Perhaps there is no one who can acquaint,
and yet, I yearn that love becomes my shrine.

Upon this path, one can feel all alone,
when walking with no one to hold your hand.
Enraged with fate one may start to bemoan,
despite all your attempts, unloved you stand.

True love, like leaves in Spring, transcend in life;
be patient heart, for growth is always rife.

Silent One

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this poem as I am a hopeful romantic... Still waiting on God to set up the cosmic meeting with "the one". Very nice Sonnet!

So very touching Silent One. Patience is truly a virtue ... and not one that I have obtained :) A soulmate is the ultimate in that love experience and once known ... no other love can satisfy. Another masterfully romantic write! ~Judy

Amazing poem once again Si..Read this beautiful post today which I think perfectly compliments these lovely words of yours. "Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting." Joyce Meyer......Maria

This poem is a prompt for thought, S-1. Defining true love can take many forms, but I personally think it could be a gamble capable of giving good dividends! Regards // paul

It is a gamble indeed Paul.. Thanks for the visit..

I think when one finds LOVE within themself, then true Love, THE ONE, like a magnet, a heat seeking missile, will arrive when least expected. On the other hand, as I am want to be contradictory, if it is not found in this life, perhaps in the next...beautiful thoughts in your poem. It pauses one to think on it all.

it such a great piece and so true. many do feel like that, patience is the smartest choice to deal with it. "despite all your attempts, unloved you stand" the saddest part is many die while standing unloved

Love is a game, sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose and our confidence dented.But persevere and the rewards will be mind blowing. A beautiful sonnet S.O. regards Tom
