Sweet Love Poem

I'm a "mature" (lol) man, recently divorced but seperated for over 15 years. Never expecting to find love again, I was resigned to being alone, not lonely, just alone. Then suddenly, out of the blue, Cupid's arrow strikes, and most unexpectedly. The person in question is a few years younger and a lot more beautiful than I deserve. It's hard to put into words these feelings when they're so personal, but I tried with this first attempt at poetry.

New Love True Love


Published: June 2017

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"
Are the words you'd hear Will Shakespeare say.
But, my love, I'm not the bard.
This poetry thing is very hard.

I'm going to try with all my might
To get the way I feel just right.
Feelings that go deep inside,
Feelings that I just can't hide.

From the day you came in to my life,
These feelings have been running rife.
So what I say I swear is true.
I want to spend my life with you.

I see your face, I see your smile,
I see your love, and all the while,
I think of what the future brings,
Of hope, of love, of many things.

There is no doubt within my mind
That you really are the loving kind.
I'm grateful to the Lord above
That he gave someone like you for me to love.

There will NEVER be anyone else for me,
And I'll show for all the gods to see
My love for you in every way
And prove the truth in what I say.

In my eyes, my love, you are
The most beautiful, by far.
And my Princess, you will see
I will love you for eternity.

It's taken a lifetime for me to find
Someone who can blow my mind
And fill my heart the way you do,
But best of all .... you love me too

My Princess, My Angel, I LOVE YOU!
