I could never stop loving you

our youth seemed easy even
with our broken smiles-
time withered into years later
and now forever continues on

we shared every emotion 
God created in the last 
twenty-three years; 
some left us breathless and
some left us weeping,
now the nights seem brighter
and morn comes too soon



skipping pebbles along the
shore as we tarry above
the grains where we first
met; the day my life changed 
and I didn’t even know it; 
youthful demons blinded me 
even when love was given
with ease-
insecurity molded into
confidence because of you,
my sweet love

fearing nothing and everything
at the same time,
needing nothing but the comfort
of strong arms embracing me
during winter’s depressed 

for you are mine and we are 
one, and together we shall 
explore all that is to come;
here and there and everywhere, 
no matter what journey we 
came from…
we shall always build the 
foundation in our home 
based on trust and loyalty 
              (our eternal sole purpose)

        so, tell me sweetheart-
how can I stop loving you? WHEN ALL YOU DO IS MOVE ME…

The last line is from my poem "you move me"

I chose the line "with broken smiles"
