It Takes Two

Two arms
to hold me close
Two hands
to touch my skin
Two lips
that kiss my own
Two hearts
that beat within
Two rings
on fingers placed
Two candles
bright as the sun
Two sets
of wedding vows
Two lives
now become one

It's now 11:58 PM HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!


 "I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me , this has always been enough." ~Nicholas Sparks from The Notebook

there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Short, simple and says a lot, in a beautiful way. Well done Ruth.

Beautiful poem, Happy New Year!

Wishing I could have been there with
you Ruth......Would have made the day
complete  

 I have learned that the pain of a lost love will fade, But the memory of having loved will last forever.
