Eternity Exists That We May Love

Eternity Exists That We May Love I hide not our love, its fathomless deep, rising fevers from heart that never sleeps. I love you, as morn's dew kisses the rose a blessing and gem that forever grows. I love you dear and your enduring grace, that radiant smile on your lovely face. Your voice, your soft, tender kisses given for such love, all my life I have striven. Your beauty, this willing heart truly slays and in our hearts, romance so gaily plays. Never shall world's dark our love interfere for truth is, our love is always so dear. Eternity exists that we may love. I the eager hands, you the silken gloves. Robert J. Lindley, 7-08-2020 Romanticism (sonnet), ( When Greatest Treasure Has Been Found ) Note: This sonnet was composed in 1973, I was then only 19 years old. recorded it in my private journal. Later edited it again and recorded it in another current journal in 1984. I have edited to post it here today with only very minor changes to the last two verses. (7/08/2020)

Than you my friend. I could not paint adequately just how deeply in love I once was at that age with my first wife.. The words to describe that depth do not exist then or now ... God bless...

Thank you my friend. Youthful romance too often has many pitfalls and heartbreaking blows just waiting to be encountered. Yet life must go ever onward. God bless..

Thank you my friend. Back then I was deeply in love and had blinding stardust in my eyes. Youth and its many mysteries, mistakes and oft sad learning curve hit me early on. Yet as a poet, I wrote at the moment-the heat of love, the magnificent passion and immense depths it to which embraces the heart and soul. God bless...
