What is Love?

Posted: May 1, 2014 in Random Poetry


Love is locked fingers
A thousand pin pricks
blood tests
Countless trips to the E.R.

Love is sixty-three
years of smiles
in the morning
and calm evenings of
good night

And one
I’ll really miss you
when you’re

  1. This is beautiful and bittersweet, and the photo is perfectly fitting. While I walked my dogs yesterday, I passed an elderly couple holding hands. That image of enduring love always gives me hope. Wonderfully written!

  2. May Day is a good day for a little heart melting. I appreciate your thoughts. Hope you got some flowers on this special day. Alicia

    I do love photos like this. Shows that sometimes it does last. That’s a nice thought, even if I’m not one of the ones it happened for. Also, your poem expresses the sentiment beautifully.
    Thanks for visiting The Netherworld and commenting on teammate Sally’s tale!
