PATIENT LOVERS

PATIENT LOVERS

A Poem by Roger Turgeon
"

Distant lovers wait...patiently

"

PATIENT LOVERS

 

Deeply pierced they were by Cupid’s keen dart

Ever joined at the soul, joined at the heart

One forever yet forever apart

Sweet emotions at bay, tempered and tart

 

Endless images of ecstasy hold

Hope for the promises yet to unfold

Of a vibrant love never grown old

And a warm body against which to mold

 

Minutes pass slowly as do hours and days

Moonbeams replace the suns searching rays

Dark ceilings explored in infinite ways

Bear witness to silence as each one lays

 

As alone they muse under the covers

Fervor-ed dreams their constant love discovers

Overhead a smiling angel hovers

For passion awaits the patient lovers

When one lover is distant from the other, it takes patience and commitment to ensure the love shall last -with each moment of romance, with each time embracing the other, the distance becomes a bit less and as the minutes slowly pass and days come and go with moonbeams and the searching rays of the sun, their bond is strengthened, the passion builds, the relationship endures!
Patient is the key word - love is present, the passion will come.
Excellent rhyming and thoughts!!

The Other Poem " She doesn't see me:"
Oh Dear.... I don't know which I love more The poem or the Stuffed Zucchini recipe, with Feta and olive oil, married to the Garlic of coarse.

How about you do the cooking and I'll read to you aloud your poems.
How about I'll set a tune to them and serenade you hypnotically as you prepare a meal fit for Royalty,
Then we'll take the Royal Meal and a blanket and we'll set under the Apple Tree?

A poignant poem.....written with such bittersweet sentiment. The rhyming and rhythm are wonderful. It's sad when two people who love one another can not be together. Lydi**

I did find, while exploring the ceiling at night, that the plaster in the left corner looks like a dog ( : O )

Its bittersweet intent went straight to my heart, sounds as though one is lost forever to the ether, but they are still connected by a bond no one or nothing could ever sever. Or she lives in Holy Toledo. :)

This write effectively expresses the yearning, the waiting that is part of long distance love. Reading it, I could picture the loneliness and longing felt by each. But it is enough that there is love and that can keep one going for a lifetime, passion or no passion. A truly worthy write Roger.
