On The Wings of A Dove

On The Wings of A Dove

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

Inspired by a dove on the window sill of my apartment in NYC, building a nest.


If you could only listen to my heart

Singing its own tune

I often wonder what you would hear

As if it had a voice of its own.


Beating softly spoken secrets

Whenever you're on my mind.

The fluttering thoughts

Of what our love really became.


Gone, but never forgotten

As my pen scribbles to it's own beat

Reminiscing word that were never said

How much our love really meant.


I'd send my words to you, wherever you are

All on the wings of a dove,

To have one more moment to cherish

And be in your arms once more.

Inspired by a dove on the window sill of my apartment in NYC, building a nest. This just suddenly came out after it flew away. Hmm...

Anna Rose, you're on fire! I can barely keep up...I listened to your heart and It has a beautiful song. Sung like the coo of the dove. This is just lovely writing and tugs at the puppet strings of the heart...I can't pick favorite lines because I love them all.
Great job from a tender heart...

I love the expression of love here. The dove is a symbol of purity, which only adds to the effect. I also love how you mention your "pen scribbling to it's own beat" Often when I write, I mention my love for writing and it's not always the writer that brings the words. Anyway, Wonderful!!!!!!

I like this piece in the process that I was imaging the scene in my head. In the hustling city, a dove building a home on a window sill, with a female looking out to the inspiration.
