True Love

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.


Submitted by Katharyne


The sun shines through the leaves.
The bird birds sing merrily.
I see him in my dreams.
He says he loves me.

Tell me, what is true love?
My full, fluttering heart
grows wings like a dove.
Storms tear this love apart.

The trees wear a dark vest.
The birds have flown away.
I sleep, but get no rest,
“I love you” he’ll still say.

Tell me, what is true love?
A heart that does not fly,
no shining sun above,
this love will make me cry.

This kind of love is true:
A lighthouse in life’s storms,
love stands by and guides you.
False love is now the norm.

Love’s not a happy heart.
it’s not a longing sigh.
Love in storms won’t depart,
in tragedy won’t die.
