Each Word


I'd grown to think love just a lie,
or fairy tales that don't exist,
until she came into my life
and found that her, I can't resist.

To gaze into her eyes and see
reflected back all that she is.
To hold her hands and draw her close,
to taste the freshness of her kiss.

Soft shivers, tingles in the night,
the sighs and longing that I feel,
tell me that love is not a lie.
Each fiber tells me that it's real.

But if it be a fairy tale,
then her, my dear sweet princess be
and I her knight, always on guard,
that no harm will she ever see.

Of Ireland and wee folk, too,
so many people that we meet
and I chanced to meet only her.
I've found in rhythm hearts can beat.

Soft whispers in the night we speak
and tell of things from others kept,
of silly things and dreams we have,
of hurtful things and tears we've wept.

Each word, more precious than the last.
The ones to come, more precious still.
Each day we speak, but not enough.
At night more words flow from my quill.

With candles burning in the night
and pushing darkness far away,
I find I still have more to write,
more words to her I need to say.

~Michael Auguste~

(smiles) Oh Michael, this is soooooo beautiful, sweet friend, I know just how you feel for even when I write many love poems for Joanna in one day, I still feel there are infinite more lovely things to say about her! (sigh) This is wonderful, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Your devotion and longing is beautiful, and delicate.

Take care,

Soft whispers in the night we speak
and tell of things from others kept,
of silly things and dreams we have,
of hurtful things and tears we've wept

I love the feelings you've captured here, Michael...they are truly what love is all about.

This happened to be listed in today's listing as I was scrolling through.
Really quite beautiful, Michael.
It is ever unclear to me if poets are writing there current status, or reflecting or projecting, or just plain hoping.

Whatever, you certainly captured much with Each Word in this poem from awhile ago.

Warm regards, Pat
