how do I know that she's there?
I can't see her
          or touch her
so, how do I know?

I know because
I see her smile in every sunrise
I feel her arms in every breeze
     she's there
and the power of her love
     fills my heart
          and I'm no longer alone
I hear her voice in every silence
I touch her face in every shadow
     she's there
and the power of my love
     touches her soul
          and she's alive once more

so, how do I know that she's there?
how do I feel her?
                  how does she feel me?
            I don't know. . .
                               . . . I'll ask her. . .

Hi Sven,

Wow, some times you just amaze me, just when I feel the world sits up side down I read words from your heart and WOW, this I shall keep, thank you friend.

Love, Cerenity

Sven,
a single glance is all you need
to know she loves in truth ans deed.
on the sunrise smiles are sent
perchance this love is heaven meant
but be wise and use your lips
to keep her at your fingertips
follow your heart and just be true
and find that love's returned to you.
Be well, you're swell
Keth

truly touching poem Sven...as only you can write...a ghost of a smile touched my lips for a fleeting moment.

Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence.

'I know because
I see her smile in every sunrise
I feel her arms in every breeze
     she's there
and the power of her love
     fills my heart
          and I'm no longer alone'

Beautiful writing, Sven!  Absolutely love this!!
