Euphoric: Word of the Day Challenge

True Love

I was euphoric when I met you 

Not very happy you had to leave 

Truly delighted when you called me 

I wore my whole heart upon my sleeve 

Now we’re here years later 

As happy as can be 

Our love is wholly pure 

As anyone can see.

Seasons of Love

At the beginning it was cold, our love not born yet. 

Spring came and our love grew, like flowers blooming. 

By summer our love was hot with passion and desire. 

In winter we took the chance to settle in with each other. 

Like the seasons come 
An epiphany of love 
Forever changing

My Love

Come on in 
the sun does shine 
I’ll be your love 
if you’ll be mine 
we walk along 
the road we take 
the garden path 
for love we make 
Below the sky 
above the ground 
we’ll walk away 
without a sound 
Cherish us 
for we are life 
I’m your husband 
you’re my wife.

I will always love you

If you live in the desert, I will love you 

If you live in the tropical rainforest, I will love you 

If you live in the temperate forest, I will love you 

If you live in the tundra, I will love you 

If you live in the taiga, I will love you 

If you live on the grasslands, I will love you 

If you live in the savanna, I will love you 

No matter where you are in the world, I will always love you.

Have you ever lost a child?

Have you ever lost a child?
Have you had to say goodbye to a being that had nothing but love for you?
Have you ever had to think of all the things that still needed to be done?
Have you ever said that only a child should bury a parent, never the other way around?

If you have ever lost a child
you wouldn’t care
what they looked like,
what clothes they wore,
what lovers they had, or
what made them happy.
You would love that they were alive.

I would take my son back
no matter what choices he ever wanted to make
no matter what mistakes he ever made
no matter how many times he messed up.

Think about it.
Why hate a person while they are alive
when you can’t do anything but cry
when they are gone?

Thursday #writephoto

For Sue’s challenge: https://scvincent.com/2020/05/21/thursday-photo-prompt-painted-writephoto/

Painted

Love is born

If I could paint my love for you 
I’d find the things that made me smile 
With all the color and the hue 
I’d search and search every mile. 

I’d walk the bridges that were built 
to span the waterway 
I’d soar the skies and search the clouds 
Forever and a day. 

And in the end it would all come back 
to peaceful, green and new 
Life begins when love is born, 
My love is born for you.

Poetic Asides April 2020 PAD – Day 19

bump, embrace, fixture, howl, lonely, resolve
https://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides

You lift me up

You lift me up 
I see your face 
I love your smile 
your warm embrace. 

You make me howl 
when having fun 
You make me feel 
I’m the only one. 

You’re like a bump 
in the dark at night 
when I resolve  
to use no light.  

You’ve become a fixture 
you’re my handsome king 
Feeling lonely  
is no longer a thing.
