Love Poems

It Sometimes Seems So Foolish to Persist

It sometimes seems so foolish to persist
When years and miles separate our lips.
Despair's a midnight lover, hard to resist
In a darkness that crushes, an emptiness that grips . . .
But the thought of giving up is just like death:
The same wild pain, the alleys of hollow years,
The python twisted hard around my breath,
My eyes cracking under the weight of tears.
Ah, my darling! If now we are in pain,
It's for a love that floods our hearts with light.
We know that we will share that joy again
If dreams can take us through this anguished night.
Soaring 'cross the sea, we dip and glide:
Our lips apart, our thoughts are side by side.

Very special love

Very special Love
beyond any problems we may have a very
special love
It hasn't been easy for us lately!
it seems that there's always
something holding us apart
who is to blame,
because we're both being ourselves,
and there's nop fault in that
beneath it all,
we have something worth while,
and if we can sort through
the confusion,
we can find the happiness
we both want.
I think our love is worth it.
I know you're worth it.
