🧡YOU ARE LOVED🙏🏻
I hope everyone had a happy and healthy Labor Day Holiday Weekend! 🇺🇸❤️🤍💙
Recently, I have taken a renewed interest in poetry. I have been reading through some of Alfred Lord Tennyson and Lord George Gordon Byron. I have enjoyed reading their work and often find myself drawn into a mental picture of their brilliance in writing or the subject of their inspired work. Being in love, receiving love and giving love are all uniquely beautiful.
The falling in love, is much different than being loved. And, staying in love is not a task for the weak of heart. If only when we fall in love, we would remember all those feelings and emotions that race through our bodies…mind, body and soul, so we would not forget them.
I remember a specific kiss, a first kiss and I experienced, a moment of pure joy. It was exciting and freeing, to say the least. It was a moment of clarity, I had never felt before. What followed was not the living paradise I had imagined, all the same I am still thankful for the experience. I wrote a poem a few years after my experience, as the memory still holds clarity, no matter the outcome.
A Kiss Is Still A Kiss©️
The innocence of it all
The reaction, still a mystery
Was it shock. Was it delight?
It was sweeter than I ever could have imagined
One small request
One summer night.
If I close my eyes
I can almost feel the moment
You and me
…one red Dodge pick up truck
…one empty fair ground.
That kiss – just a kiss
But, oh what a kiss
It opened my life to a whole new world.
Since that summer night
My life, it has never been the same
Filled with much happiness mixed with some sadness
I often wonder about where my life would be
If not for that kiss
I will never know
…my hope, is no n matter what, it all matters and I wish for happiness.
I will never regret my answer to the question
I will always be thankful for the experience
Yet, somewhat saddened by my limitations.
That kiss, though it was spectacular
However, in the end , it was just a kiss
But, oh what a kiss.
A kiss is still a kiss.

I must say, my life has experienced other loves and losses but as Lord George Gordon Byron eloquently writes, “The heart will break, but broken live on.”
The heart is a miraculous organ that God gave each of us. It can bare equal parts joy and sorrow while maintaining all functions of supplying life to our bodies.
