Notes Of Love/Sami Khalil

These words are thoughts, which blossom within my heart,

are also the roses left for you to pick and keep.

I have realized that we never appreciate the seasons of our lives

until it dawns on us that they have escaped our grasp;

For all things have fragility in life, except true love,

it grows stronger by time’s passing.

And all things are mortal, but if I have to live indefinitely,

I would live in a dream which would connect your soul

to mine, without the chaos of our world.

I have rejected all yesteryear's for you longing

 

and hoping for a future dream together.

I also have hoped that in the wee hours,

your illuminated shadow,

will overcome my darkness with a sunrise.

Even if the sun sets over its lonely hill

giving way to a black coal sky,

you can still see the dreamer in me.

And if we are afraid to show this love know that light

will dissipate any darkness or fear.

For this silent love of mine might go unnoticed

but it will always bring a surprise to light.

I have concluded that all things have secrets

except a shared heart,

it whispers love phrases in the open.

I also have found out that it takes a soft breath

to start a fire, just as you started an invisible one within.

And if it takes ink to write love letters, I would rather write

them with my blood flow.

And if I bleed to death, I know that death can change

the mortal moments but not our eternity.

Well I am a curious guy always out there reading all sorts of writes. So today I end up visiting your page. And it was a delight. I always read an initial work of a writer to begin with. ^^ First thoughts on the poem itself. I love the structure and the flow that is maintained throughout the poem is superb. Credit goes to the fine vocabulary you have displayed here. I must also add that they a good job in invoking vivid imagery. This write packed quite the punch. I loved the tone that changes ever so slightly in intervals as the poem proceeds further down. You have expressed a lot of phases and the end had definitely is one I would call fitting. People have already expressed and interpreted about the write here. I understand it as well. Just thought I would share my views on how the flow and tones felt to me as I read it. ^^ Thank you for sharing ^^

How true, Sami. We never truly enjoy the moment we are in and yet when it has passed, we wish for it to return. Love truly can "overcome darkness with a sunrise." Deeply romantic and filled with longing. Sami, as always, the presentation is lovely and the choice of vocabulary is stellar. Just wonderful. Lydi**

Sami Khalil,
The message of devotion within your "Notes of Love" is the strength which permeates. "Roses to pick up and keep" The awareness of the confidence of a safe place for your love be nurtured and grow. I also found the devotion expressed withing "a whisper, a soft breath starting a fire." This last line blends perfectly with the topic of the blood of love which cannot be quenched.............You are an amazing descriptive writer...................blessings again..............Kathy

simply beautiful ..serene and with purpose ...putting words to actions means we will not "miss" the moment ...can't even begin to say how many times i had great thoughts to do something to lift someone else up ..and let it go because of the demon "time" ;0 i
easy smooth flowing read this morning ..glad i found it!

Amazing poetry my friend.
"And if it takes ink to write love letters, I would rather write
them with my blood flow"
Better to write than bleed for love. Sometime we bleed words too. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Very grand and romantic!

As always your language is fabulous and sets the poem alight with its brilliance. What really captures me here is the brutal honesty and sincerity with which this piece has been written. In true heart on the sleeve style, and without a care for judgements. A true sign of romantic nobility.

If this poem doesnt appeal to the heart of the desired, then what hope do us mortals have of ever accomplishing true love? And what a picture. Stunning!

An excellent piece of romanticism. Well Done!

The verses themselves cast a spell of eternity to the passions and feelings portrayed by them. It is the quintessential power of Art that unites mortality with immortality through its alchemy.
I am mesmerized by this ravishing poem. The diction invoking vivid imagery is so very beautiful. Thanks for sharing this amazing piece.

(And all things are mortal, but if I have to live indefinitely, I would live in a dream which would connect your soul to mine, without the chaos of our world.) These are some of the most beautiful and romantic thoughts I've ever read Sami! Glad I went back to he outer limits to read this one.
