The Words of a Kiss

 

The words of a kiss

   are ancient they say.

They’re spoken moments

   they act out a play.
 

Each tender small touch

   each moment sublime,

speaks volumes in verse,

   in prose, and in rhyme.
 

They cannot be counted

   by clocks on the wall.

Nor is there measure

   not great or not small.
 

Each one is a concert

   in passions bright room.

They each sing their own song;

   some joy and some doom.
 

I remember the first days

   when talk was all cheap,

when climbing a mountain

  was but a small leap.

 

The days passed in plenty

   the years rolled on by,

yet ever that lip song

   still lets out his sigh.
 

Though often our troubles,

   our worries, our pain,

will insert a barrier

   where love had once lain.
 

Then still waits a new song

   with words just the same.

A gentle soft answer

   my kiss is its name.
 

It waits in the evening,

   it waits in the morn.

To start up and speak out,

   my love to adorn.

This is beautiful. The rhythm is superb and the flow is excellent. Mostly when I read poetry that wasn't written like a hundred years ago, I tend not to like it as much, but yours is definitely one of the few that I actually enjoy! Some people don't really care about meter or flow anymore, but this is truly a masterpiece. Good job.
