Love Bells

He fit nowhere,
filled with despair,
alone and bare,
he placed a dare.
Arms in the air
yearning to care,
hoped life was fair
and love climbed stairs.

Past bonds all failed,
knew faith tips scales,
ambitions sailed,
noticed details.
Essence of hail,
but felt so frail,
created tales,
he hoped prevailed.

Right then and there,
painted a layer,
a silent prayer,
made him aware.
True joy so rare,
beyond compare,
his perfect pair,
matched his shocked stare

Wishes he mailed,
landed and nailed,
jumped off the rails,
uncovered veils.
Love was exhaled,
huge as a whale,
pure joy inhaled,
forming light trails.

In a joint square,
their life was shared,
endless affair,
true love was theirs.
Bliss filled the air,
bright yellow flare,
found they were heirs,
to hearts that care.

Response to Sadje’s picture prompt on What do you see #145 August 01, 2022


A glowing spark
fills up the air.
I see your light
in every stare

Presence exudes
a stardust hue.
Droplets of you
create my view.

I search above
fluorescent stars,
to feel your wink
when you are far.

I see your smile
light up the sky.
A mystic ache
swells up my eyes.

A deep sorrow
stands in my throat.
You are now gone
I hold your coat.

Shadow my thoughts
I feel you near.
Never alone
this day each year

Instant fulfillment.
Sensing the presence of love,
in a strangers heart.

Infinite Dad (Published at The Writers Club)

Protective teacher, greatest friend,
infinite bond without an end.
Before each fall your hand extends.
My wrongs and rights you would defend.

With just one look, into my eyes,
you knew all truths I tried to hide.
Always candid, laughed at my lies,
so many fights that made you sigh.

A mix of strength and affection
taught me great faith with direction.
You made life safe, gave protection,
an ultimate mute connection.

Your heart my home with open doors,
festive embrace that I adored,
sincerest love felt at my core,
stories you told made me want more.

Walked by my side showed me you cared,
gave me advice, wisdom you shared,
ignited light made sure I dared,
then you were gone, I felt so scared.

Now you are free from any pain,
I celebrate memories gained,
your body is gone, essence remains,
nothing can break our strong linked chain.
