Poem -

When Forever is Ours

When Forever is Ours

Within the wind's soft mystery
I feel your heart's sweet company
A breezy tease in love's delight
Ushering in dawn's thoughts in light

How I wish dream's transient stay 
Could bring you here without delay
Where our hearts and hands reach to link
While our lips kiss with sultry sync

A treasure box could never keep
Feelings composed of glistened sweep
To be spent as showered affection
When our love pairs in perfection

Imagine a bridge of stronghold's bond
Where our love crosses to abscond
We could find the dream we both seek
Standing there, spellbound, cheek to cheek 

Life's crown of thorns becomes rosette
Once we join to paint same sunset
Find me, Love, standing by seashore
When forever is ours to explore......

And I will love you, evermore

Hey C!!....you're definitely 'right at home' within this genre......laying gorgeous and unique phrasing at the feet of the lovers of this most popular form of poetic achievement......takes a LOT of work and confidence to reach this level of romantic delivery......for some....this may read as simplistic.....when in actuality ........it is the result of thousands of hours of effort in all areas ~ reading/writing/research........Great Stuff milady!!.......hugs-n-kisses......T xo🐧✴❤❤❤❤❤✴🐧

Hey T!  Yes, I am at home with this romantic genre of poetry...and find it impossible to not write of what inspires me.  If love ever disinterests me, then someone better call 911, because love is what sustains me..lol  There are so many ways and themes to write about love, that I believe I will always be inspired.  I do take every poem I write to heart and it is work for me.  Thank you for understanding my hopelessly romantic nature and love of all things  pertaining to LOVE....Thank you!  ;)  Love, n Hugs, xoxoxo C

So beautiful, Cherie. What a wonderful heart you have. 
In a world where romance is not what it used to be(so very unfortunately), you bring me back to the times when it was the ultimate prize, and yearning, in life...the good days. I don't understand how people could lose sight of it, because it's truly the best, imaginable thing, but they should read you, and perhaps they'll see the gorgeousness of love again. 

Great write, my awesome friend. 
You're the best. 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew.  Bless you.  I totally agree...Romance rules! Lol...I think love should have that ever yearning feeling and inspire in all aspects of life.  What a nice compliment to say that people should read my poetry to see "the gorgeousness in love again."  Romance is a state of mind for me...and it is what motivates me in life.  It is why I love to write about it and share it.  I am so happy you understand that about how I write.  Thank you.  

You are the best!  xo ;)   Cheerie

Thank you, Cheerie! 
Ummm...I believe you have me mixed up with you in determining 'the best' person, but thank you. 
Is life anything without romance, and love??!! If it is, I'm not aware of it, and I think you believe the same. 
Please keep writing about it, it's gorgeous, and it's life. 

Thank YOU! 

Hugs, 

Matthew.

Hi Cherie, when I read your poems, I'm taken back to an educated time, a time very different to the present moment, where words were cherished and respected, your poems deserve a library of great importance, a place were people can go to fall into a beautiful mind.

Thank you.

Hi Gerard.  Thank you!  Wow!  That is such a touching compliment.  I think I was born out of time, for real, because I don't understand the world I live in and would much rather go back to the days where romance was revered and appreciated.  Words can be so powerful in relating feelings and views of love...I am honored that you are sensitive to that as I am.  Bless you. xo ;)
