One Single Impression: Love (# 1)

Mr. and Mrs. Jim's wedding picture
- - -
They said to write a love poem

To my sweetest, my blossom true
wanting to write you a love poem
telling you how much I love you
fingers to keys sweet words to come

tell how you felt when first you saw her
I will try to write a love poem

When first we met my heart went wild
no tender little pitty-pat
but one long jolt you caused, my child,
a bolt from the blue hit my chest

how you knew it was her you loved
It came one day into my head
Listen to my arrow pierced heart
my life will never be the same
Dan Cupid hit me on the mark
that arrow had your name

tell now about being with her

My life is whole a life complete
I need you always by my side
dearer than chocolate you're so sweet
love you always will you're my pride

are you happy with what you wrote?
If I could only write a poem
if I had the sweet words I felt
if I could now put them to print
there would be a love poem for you

discarded thoughts that didn't fit?

Many thoughts I dropped one thing sure
I love you to Heaven above
you can do no wrong you're so pure
I can't live without you my love

Hi Jim;

Wow...but it's a poem in itself? If I were Mrs. Jim, you deserved a wholesome memorable treat!

I smiled on that jolt that caused a child...:) And cupid could always be naughty, forever!

Beautiful Jim, no more, no less!!!

I love the natural flow of thoughts in your poem.

Writing a poem without using punctuation can be dangerous for the unwary.
Here, because of Amity's comment, I added a couple of commas. The child, my love, caused the bolt. A better writer would not have caused any confusion here.

What a fitting and beautiful tribute. I love the dialogue you created with the questions and the responses through your poetry. It's lovely that you dedicated this poem to the special woman in your life. Nice photo as well. Take care!

what a beautiful tribute...
a true love letter, Jim...
I am so happy that you found your lost love in her as I did mine in my second marriage.
I too wonder how I could possibly live this long without him...
