Not You, My Love

the gentle tide
may turn into
a raging wave

but not you my love,

may turn
into nightmares

but not you my love,

wounds may hurt
and become
lasting scars

but not you my love,

love may fade away
but i believe
yours won’t

no, not yours my love,

some may lose
a battle, go home

but not you my love,
never really you
for you champion
and perfected
the art of winning

  1. To be in partnership with such a champion – that is what all couples crave!?
    We blind ourselves or help to heal the perceived flaws.
    The knowing that neither, either is perfect without the other 😉
    That is when a ‘couple’ wins!


  2. It’s lovely to see your beautiful words pop up on my feed, Mich! I’ve got to do some wandering, your many offerings have caught my eye and belatedly I must congratulate you on your published poetry, how wonderful for you!
