Love Life Poems Logo

After being married for 29 years, my husband suddenly left me for another woman. Over the course of the next 8 months, we had the saddest time of our lives. My husband is now back with me and realizes we cannot live without each other. Both of us have had a ''shock'' in our lives at what we could have lost for all eternity. This poem is about how I feel about our love. We have been together since I was 15. We are very much in love, but there is still hurt and fear there.

I Know A Love

© Heather Jones

I look into your eyes
And imprint your gaze in my memory
Not knowing if it will be the last time
You hold me so close

I breathe in your smell
And taste your skin
I turn and close my eyes
Quietly sighing a thousand sighs inside

I feel such promise when you hold me
I feel safety in your arms
I never want to leave here
But sleep a thousand sleeps

Now knowing what I lost
Makes the losing so much harder
When eventually we part
I will grieve for eternity

The second I leave you
I ache for you inside
When I see you again
My heart knows comfort

I know a love
That cannot be restrained
Unconditional and fathomless
An ocean of tears we have cried

I will never stop loving you
Never, never, never
It is all I know how to do
To love the us, the me and you
