the joyous ache of you

the joyous ache of you

A Poem by Lyn Anderson

Inspired by comments on my recent works


someone once told me

that love can be a joyous ache -

that's something I never knew

until I met you.

but that's not all love does -

it lives and jumps and breathes

and stutters, stumbles, shakes

and quivers - it fills me, and spills

out onto the floor, it shivers

and pops, and crackles for more ...

On occasion, it sings in the shower.

and yes, for you

It aches ...

Thanks. You were (are) inspirational. :)
Love is all you have said and more. That ache you have inside when you are away from the one you love, tells you how much they mean to you and how much you miss their company. Yes, I can understand that and singing in the shower too. Good to read you again Lyn.

Thanks so much. I appreciate you taking the time
a very welcome ache indeed...and if we take the good with the bad, the downs with the ups...
then we are really in love and really committed to a feeling that can last forever and a day.
quite the romantic write here.
