Distance has made its way
weaving through our paths
Yet I’ve been near everyday
though, with my heart in a cast
Past words have been lethal
leaving souls in broken bits
but I think of you daily
It’s your spell I truly miss
You ask these things of me
with plain uncertainty
Yet I sense you still have feelings
even as you tread carefully
You have never left my heart
It is there you have remained
I hold this place for you
To your love I am chained
Ask anything, My Darling,
Anything, at all,
I’m yours ‘till eternity
With you and only you,
I will fall

Magnificently romantic, Lauren! You truly have a beautiful heart that bleeds through every line of your work

VERY beautifully written Lauren. He is so fortunate to have the heart of a woman you are!
Thanks so much, Scott! The lethal words part is fiction or perhaps from the past, but the romantic part is genuinely current…your kind words made my day! I’m lucky, too and I wish you the same happiness in love…based on your writing alone, I can see many women melting! Sending happiness hugs to you! 🙂
Lauren, I could feel the bond between you and the “you” of this poem. Unbreakable! This is a very lilting and gentle, yet strong, reminder of the everlasting bonds that connect us to those special loved ones. It serves, also, as an excellent metaphor of the love between God and His children!
Thank you so much, Rose, and I love your other Godly perspective, of which I didn’t even see…but, this is also fitting for our relationship with God and the ups and downs of our faith journeys…

A friend made through blog and poetry, Lauren Scott, penned this one. Sometimes I think she and I share a life…. since she shares her heart better than I and it resonates. So appropriate to place here…. Lisa
