After  All

After All

A Poem by storiestotell

My life is made up of our vows.




















Completely in love,

my emotions follow his heart,

where he knows every shade of me.

my life is made up of

our vows,

and  wandering thoughts of his

breathless touch.

After all,

I envelop the whispering in

every kiss,

the taste that lingers upon

my finger tips,

and eyes that read my

every smile.

Our lives are made up of

one word.

After  all.














Completely in love,

I read the wrinkles on

his face,

and find his heart in the

palm of my hands.

I now wander through the

passing years,

holding callus hands,

where each one tells

a memory.

After all,

our love is mirrored

between once two young souls,

but is stronger with every feeling we hold

in our minds,

every  good time spoken,

and all the passing heart beats


One word keeps us forever.

After all.

All the passing heartbeats shared. Very strong.

You succeed in making this a genuine love poem for all couples who stand by their vows.

This poem and this bond are both pure magic. The understanding that goes

Thank you very much!
I like how you pluck the words from the shades of your fluffy heart.

Admirable lines: "our love is mirrored
between once two young souls..."

Nice poem. I`ve seen here the clear pic. of lovers and their love that`s walked together ov`r the life since the birth to an end. Moreover, the title`s full of mystery as well. Nice imagery.

Thank you so much!
Such a sweet story of love that lasts through the years. My 39th wedding anniversary is coming up soon so it meant a lot to me. Love changes, but lasts, if it is real. Lydi**

Thanks for reviewing.
We all know that one word
But I was thinking more along the lines of: "Devotion".

This truly is a beautiful heartwarming poem.

Greatly enjoyed.
