Fire in their hearts


trueloveYou feel the warmth from the first touch of hands, but when the sky shows you this, you know: True love has begun…

Wanting more than whispers of affection, 
years plodding alone, needs veiled.
Below the shroud, two hopeful hearts wait.  

By chance they meet.

Beneath the words, True Love speaks:
integrity, devotion, joy, innocence, acceptance. 

Without warning, the dream is real.
Hearts full, they can breath.

We will stand together whatever we weather,
 joined but not tethered.
Care of each other, preceding all else. 

Regardless of circumstance, near or apart
we choose to be joined at the heart.’

I was in my element watching the fireworks with him, and taking photos … but when I saw this shot I was astonished and delighted to receive such a glorious sign, realising the fire of true love, the greatest gift, was real! ❤ ❤

  1. I remember those words from “Nature Boy” and even the tune. I love they two fiery hearts. Your words are best of all. You describe love (true should go without saying) as I have come to understand it .I think the “not tethered” part is crucial.

  2. What a beautiful poem 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing it with us at WR101. My mum would love the photograph. She sees hearts in everything; food, the earth, in objects…we have dozens of pics of her discovered hearts. They are like a gift – as is this poem.
