Forest Though The Trees- A Love Poem
I looked through the forest for one to be,
For I needed to know she was there.
But my sight was clouded by the tree,
This would only bring me despair.
I held my hope of one you see,
For I need the love to be fair.
The spirit pleading to be free,
It was almost too much to bear.
This fate of mine now thought decreed,
I started to loose what life could bring.
The torment that it would surely breed.
The soul beat down, never to sing.
The wind had changed… the forest green,
I saw an opening between the tree.
A field of beauty that none had seen,
The flowered path leading it to me.
As I walked the path the birds took wing,
The sounds of life more clear.
My heart would pound as each would sing,
The smell of flowers, field a near.
Gentle winds, the grass in wave
The eyes of sky, bright and blue
It’s shape so perfect my thought “be brave”
This field I view must not be true.
I closed my eyes to wipe a tear
When they opened, it was you
For fate was changed that day my dear
I know that yours was too.
