A Poem for Love

my poem for love
neither rhymes nor idolizes,
for my love is filled with
jagged edges and hasty judgments.
sometimes the judgments were on the mark
and sometimes they led to heartache.
the early love was sweet and pure,
but also clingy and desperate.
trial and error led to gathered friendships and
effort wasted on fruitless encounters.
advancing years brought wiser decisions
and a deeper connection that was able to blossom.
love for children built ecstasy and depth,
but also fear and worry,
the constant companions.

my poem for love
neither fantasizes nor gushes,
for my love is filled with
realistic moments and dashed expectations.
sometimes the expectations were unrealistic,
yes, most times they were, that is true.
when the expectations were put to the side
and fantasy left for the writers,
the moments of deep connection
have been sweet and fulfilling.

my poem for love
brings music and rhythm,
for my love is filled with moments of
unplanned dancing and laughter.
sometimes the laughter is simply a release
and sometimes it is heartfelt and pure.
these are the moments that rush by
and yet,
they are the ones to remember.

my poem for love
continues its journey.
it neither rhymes nor gushes
rather, it follows
its meandering and flowing way.

my poem for love is real.

From my upcoming book, Love Leads the Way.
