My Life My Love

My Life My Love

A Poem by Constance Payne
"

The emotional feelings must often be placed upon paper so that the heart can be ready for more. Expression held inside are not expressions, they should be shared with the one loved.

"

My Love, My Life

~Your smile lights my day making me know that I matter.

~Your voice stills my fears.  Those fears that often stop me from being who you know I can be.

~Your heart surrounds mine in tender caresses when I am broken seemingly beyond repair from the cruelty of the world.

~Your love holds me up each day, reminding me of all the possibilities that exist beyond my right now.

~Your kindness helps me be kind to others regardless of how hurt I feel by the cruelness of others.

~Your sarcasm makes me laugh as others do not understand, yet I know that no harm is intended.  It is just the who you are.

~Your eyes hide your pain at not being able to hold the world at bay, allowing only the good in & keeping the cruelness away from our hearts.

~Your world entwined with mine gives me strength to know that all my dreams can be realities if we believe in each other and work together for their achievement.

~Your life completes mine giving me hope each day to keep moving toward a life that will be remembered well with the knowledge that the love between us could carry us through all the world could throw at us and we survived in love and kindness toward the world.

Beautiful tribute. The words expressed in this are raw and personal which makes it so much more touching.
"Your love holds me up each day, reminding me of all the possibilities that exist beyond my right now"
Love that line.
On a technical note I believe in the second line, second sentence fear should be fears and in the 5th line fell should be feel.
Lovely piece my friend.

You do many things right my friend. Don't let them tell you otherwise.
I love a sweet and honest tribute of love. Love is hard to find and when you find it it needs to be nurtured and grown. This was a beautiful poem to the person you love.

Thank you for reading. This is as from my heart as it can get. :)
You have beautifully described a strong relationship full of powerful love and companionship. I enjoyed it very much. This sentence confused me a bit : "reminding me of all the possibilities that exist beyond my right now." It should either be beyond me right now or beyond mine if you mean possibilities here again.
"It is just the who you are." I think you should remove the here. And finally I am not sure cruelness is a right word, maybe you should check it out. I think you should use cruelty.
Nice work all in all!

This is a wonderful tribute! These statements would make excellent wedding vows, for this is exactly how love should be, making us want to be the best person we can.

My favorite: Your love holds me up each day, reminding me of all the possibilities that exist beyond my right now...
Beautiful, Constance!
