Yours is Love…
that surrounds me
like the air I breathe
inside me
and out
sets me free
holds me fast
like gravity
keeps me grounded
like the wind
gives me wings
lets me fly
calls me back
holds me close
in the still night
in your heart
shines the light
through your eyes
shows the way
to heaven

  25. Ms. Peaches Says:

    wonderful…beautiful!!! thank you for sharing I’d like to share 2 awards with you

  26. “shows the way to heaven”

    I love this line. Love breeds love by example of love in action, and by knowing someone cares, someone believes in us, someone accepts us as we are. Heaven is that place where love is given and received unconditionally, like the air you breathe in and out – Oh Amanda, this poem is really, really good. Some love poems are sickly sweet, silly or over romanticized, but this is more than any of that – this is a deep, transforming, mature love love-poem. A poem that realizes love is a teacher, a mentor for the soul. Five Star rating for this one, girlfriend!!

  27. what a lovely piece,
    love butterflies…

    they have the beauty that make one fall, so do your poems.

  28. Glad that you linked in yourself…

    the party will be boring without dishes from you..
