Between Us...

Don’t tell me
Let me look into your eyes
They often say more
Than word-disguise

Don’t worry
About anything but Today
Darling, the future
Is too far away

Don’t fight it
Love is a long-suffering war
But darling, its moments
We are here for

I’d rather
Gather moments and forget the rest
Because, just between us,
We do moments best

  1. Hi friend! "Love is a long-suffering war" is so...wow...powerful... It actually prompted me to write...I'll let you know if/when I feel it's ready for sharing ;-)

    1. oh, please do! this will be a chain-reaction poem-tree because this poem was inspired by a poem on Writer's Digest today. SO many good ones with today's prompt.

    2. Jen, I am touched beyond words at the poem and the 'mention'. Hugs~


Thank you for your visit to this porch. Any thoughts you would like to share?
