True Sounds

The true sound of love is of air to my ear
a timbered voice of an age old soul
whose gnarled hands once knew
the silken threads of love now gone.
          Thanks, Dad

The true sound of love were the fingers
snapping to a tune she whistled quietly
when she knew her children were tucked in safe,
but kept still the solid vigil in her heart.
          Thanks, Mom

The true sound of love is the heartbeat
of my mate at my back, resonating
through nightgown and skin
and warmth holds forever my love within.
          Thanks, Dear

The true sound of love is the laughter
spontaneous and true over life’s follies
and moments held in God’s hands
that only children can find.
          Thanks, Kids

The true sound of love sounds deep within my heart
when I give thanks to You for all of the above.
          Thanks, God

Such wisdom in these lines relating the really important things we have to be thankful for, and especially the ending  where you're thanking God for allk the rest.  Beautifully done.

the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

A wonderful expression of what Love is. In a world where most things can be bought, you remind us that the really important things cannot.

Sunshine-

I am pleased to say that this is,
in my opinion, the FINEST work I've
seen you do.  Not to detract from the
other beautiful things you've written,
but ... there's a soft-spoken truth
that comes through in this.

Why, this verse alone is worth more
than I can ever say-

'The true sound of love is the heartbeat
of my mate at my back, resonating
through nightgown and skin
and warmth holds forever my love within.
          Thanks, Dear'

What a wonderfully, loving lady you are.
Your heart sings through the entire piece.

The loveliest of imagery it brings to mind.
Love ~*Marge*~

This reminds me so much on an old song
"True Love, true love"
So very beautiful written
Makes the heart jump higher
Thanks for such excusite piece of poetry

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Beautiful sentiments, Sunshine! Your heart of love shines bright!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

and I am sure, Pepper, that perhaps you "look" at my pieces now in a different light?  Thanks!
