I knew this day would come, I prepared for it.
But...even as much as I prepared, I wasn’t strong.
I felt feelings stronger than my own soul
I lost the game of strength, my heart was weak.

How could I ever prepare for a moment so touching
A moment when I could not touch you, hold you.
A minute of time when you needed me there
An eternity of love lying before me, before us.

You asked my words, yet I fumbled and almost fell.
My pause reflecting my fears, my own anxiety
I walked away momentarily, my mind failing me.
My heart spoke before my lips could ever say.

I will count the moments until I again see you
My breath will not frost before me till then
I will hope, pray and ever want this for you
For I will love you tenderly until I die.

Beautiful indeed.

(big hugggsssssss) Such sorrow fills these bittersweet words of true love! (sigh) I pray this isn't based on a present feeling, for you deserve the most beautiful love always! (sigh) So sad but beautifully touching, sweet friend! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Magnus, thank you for sharing!

May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

There is not one single doubt in my mind that you will succeed in fulfilling your promise, Magnus.  You write with such an open beautiful heart.  It's truly a joy to read.  

All writing comes
by the grace of God.

LW...as I have said...you too have a way of
expression that comes across very deep from
within...truth, not fiction...I consider
your thoughts a warm complement.

Forgive me for quoting your response, rather than your poem...but I related as much to it, as to the poem.  Somehow, those nights do 'hurt so good'.  Incredible write!

My heart spoke before my lips could ever say ...

True words of a true heart.
I find my heart racing past my
thoughts at such times as well.
Exceptionally well done!!

*sigh* oh yes, no one loves as tenderly as you do. Absolutely beautiful, my friend. I see you are past your 1000th....go check out discussion and go to announcements...there is a little surprise for you there.   **hugs**

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

I like this one very much, although in reading so many of your poems, I keep hoping I'll find some in which you've gone on to some other subjects than love, and more in which you dare to write without the reassurance of rhyme and meter.
