Ode To Love

Ode To Love

A Poem by JohnnyB

Two people live together

In a world all of their own,

Searching for peace and happiness,

They travel all alone;

 

They realize that no others,

Have room in this world they've made,

Alone they have taken the ups and downs,

And the dues alone they've paid;

 

Of course they have times of trouble,

But they always manage to pull themselves through,

They know as long as they trust in each other,

There is nothing they can't do;

 

No questions of doubt exist in their minds,

They know their lives are complete,

They walk through their world side by side,

Never bowing at each other's feet;

 

Each has sacrificed for the other,

To help their little world grow,

They keep the door to understanding open,

Without putting on a phony show;

 

Selfishness has no home in their world,

Neither does any other childlike dealings,

For they learned a long time ago,

To respect the other one's feelings;

 

To them success is not money,

It's the little world they have found,

In each other's company they walk,

Always feeling safe and sound;

 

They let no one trespass into their world,

They keep watch both day and night,

If someone should attempt to conquer their world,

They are fully prepared to fight;

 

There is no one or any thing,

That walks or exists in this land,

That could destroy the world of these two people

For they are in complete command;

 

They will journey together throughout this lifetime,

Until one or the other has passed,

For they have found the key that's needed,

To make their precious world last;

 

Wherever they're found they'll be together,

Their way lit by the sun above,

You'll find them walking hand in hand,

As they walk through their world of love.

Author's Note

JohnnyB
Originally titled A Private World, this is one of the first five poems I wrote once I decided I was not going to write them to lovers any more (give them away, which I did for a few years previous without keeping copies) but rather keep them in a notebook. Which title fits better?

I REALLY liked this one.. there was so much in this to admire! A high sense of love.. devotion and loyalty flows so profoundly in this writing.. the likes so many fail to find in life! A sense of equality.. with both high ranking to each other.. friendship eternal! Combining your message with rhyme, rhyme and flow is just a magical essence.. and truly the highest aspiring dream worth more than any money! Loved it.. if this was written for a spouse or as a tribute to a real relationship.. if they have this.. they are very lucky indeed! PRICELESS!!!

I like Ode To Love. This is so very beautiful and so well written. It has a nice rhythm to it that makes it a joy to read. Nice rhyming too. This is how a relationship should be. Excellent job.

Thay walk through their world sise by side,

Never bowing at each other's feet; - beside the other wonderful lines I like this a lot. It is so important not to take on a subordinate role in relationships

great work. regards, L. Gandré
