Toward the Full of It

We persist
And rearrange
And change our minds
We didn’t know
Those years ago
How long and strong
Love was

So, for love’s sake
Of give and take
We break beneath
Its kiss
As, still we learn
The strange return
Of how patient
Love is

Heave-ho, ahoy,
To find love’s joy
We dare not
Dare to quit
But ever press
With tenderness
Toward the full
Of it

  1. I like your style, and I've written some poetry in this fashion. I love the flow and the meaningful message to never quit.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
