My Heaven

It's always my favourite paint
The colour of sunny skies
Awaking my dream, my faith
The shine of your loving eyes

It lit up my fading hopes
It made me forget my fears
Assured me that I will cope
With anything that I face

But if you give up my love
If ever your eyes turn grey
My blue in the sky above
I know, it will still remain

It shelters me from the rain
Consoling my rebel heart
The one which can not betray
And will never dare to hurt

So, looking into the deep
I fondly recall your name
To whisper it in my sleep
And, waking, repeat the same

The only way is to trust
If I can not feel a clue
My heaven's lost in the dust
My soul is forever blue

Outstanding in its portrayal of unnoticed love.... why are poems like this not ever featured in Poems of the Day at!
Beautiful poem that captures the essence of love ❤, elegantly penned in lovely rhyme scheme from inner recesses of the heart with conviction. Thanks for sharing Galina. Please read my poem POETIC MASTERPIECE.
You wrote the subject of this poem is LOVE but it's also HOPE, and a particularly strong, sturdy, durable hope. The last line asserts this hope with special force in saying MY SOUL IS FOREVER BLUE. and you have prepared that statement for a time of abandonment, when the trusted one's eyes turn gray. Your HEAVEN is not the supernatural place out there, out of reach. It's a very accessible place in the here and now of our emotional hopes and dreams. there is a related word in English HAVEN - that's the kind of heaven your poem celebrates, a safe place, a harbor where we can nurse our heart-wounds and restore our hopes.
So beautifully written Galina with stunning imagery this poem is so deep with passion and love bursting from it's lines of such gentleness and beauty! I love this stunning write!
Faith keeps those who keep the faith - Mother Teresa. A lovely poem penned in poetic diction. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MZANSI AND THE BALLOT BOX.
