Welcome to My Poetry Site
Falling into the arms of love
With Valentine's Day only days away,
Love is very much in the air. In fact
Love is everywhere, in the shops, on
The telly, on the wireless and oh, so
Very much on the mind.
There is nothing in the world quite like
Love and nothing in the world quite as
Inspiring as a beautiful woman. I saw
One yesterday in a printed cotton frock,
And for a moment time stood still and in
The silence of uncertainty I momentarily
Knew again the 'hit' that comes when
The eyes meet and the heart stirs.
Such is the power of love - not easy to
Define or refine. 'One man's meat is
Another man's poison' and 'Beauty is in
The eye of the beholder' and that said,
We can move on to a time perhaps when
One knows something has happened,
But precisely what is not clear, until 'love'
Has had a chance to mingle in the mind
Permeating the senses to arrive at the
Only conclusion possible - when without
Warning the truth finally dawns.
A thrilling experience and one that has
No equal, for what could be better than
Waking up to love, stirring to the eyes
Of a beautiful woman, to a heart that
Beats only for you and to lips that long
For your lips? No, try as I might, there is
Nothing I can think of that comes even
Close to falling into the arms of love.
And so it has always been for me. I never
Tire of a glance that stops me in my tracks,
Makes me wish I was ten years younger,
Makes me think, makes me wander, and
Makes me write; and it will always be true,
At least of my pen, for no matter where
It takes me - a pretty woman led the way.
