HER BEAUTY AND GRACE

She mirrors far more loveliness and grace,
than any other my heart has cared for.
From my mind her beauty I can’t efface,
it is she I will love for evermore.
For her heart my first love yearns, her soft kiss,
sweet smile, her long black hair my eyes adore,
with feelings deep, as meaningful as this,
to end the quest, my pretense lead ashore.
Oh, how the heart has waited for the day,
to reach out in loving you, love confessed,
for the love to blossom to find its way,
to your heart, forever to be blessed.

If only I could see my love returned,
instead of my dreams remaining unturned.

True love is magical. When it finds your heart, hold it so very close. Never let go. ~ Maia

Very nice, T.J; 70 years old now, I am, and yet my first love is as fresh a memory as the roses blossoming in my garden, tenderly cared for season after season. Beautiful writing my friend!

Awww.... this one really broke my heart! I remember the pangs of first love (unrequited of course lol) and I can entirely relate to this poem... I hope someday somebody looks at me the way you looked at her...

Thank you very much, Angie. Yes, unrequited love can be so very painful in ones youth, but the memory of our first love remains. T.J

Beautiful. Unrequited love has ever been a moving poem topic just as it will always be a ever sore heart topic. You done good! I felt the longing, you drew me in to the longing and the pain. Again, beautiful ... CayCay

As of late I've been into your sonnets and the mastery of this form you exhibit! Your flow I am learning a great deal from and each one's content is different and stands on it's own! It is as obvious as can be why this was chosen POTW! Write On Sir...Write on!!!

Lost love - so tender. "Oh how the heart has waited for the day," the day that never comes. Love it. Love, daver

Oh, I am touched! Reminds me of my man, Tim, waiting and dreaming for 3 years (not that I'm all that - it is just what happened.) The yearning is universal and you have put it to words, beautifully! CayCay (yes, I have felt this way, too)

T. J. Congratulations of the POTW Honor here!! For me, your Sonnet is magnificence exemplified. (Sorry I didn't see it earlier!!) Be that as it may, this one is 7+ and is going in my Book of FAVs. One can and should appreciate the craftsmanship and attention-to-detail that you put in to each and every one of poetic writes. I know that I certainly do. Great Work!! Cheers and Best, Gary
