The Secret Of Love........

The secret of love is love itself…….
as it exudes a fragrance,
however hidden it may be……..!
It gives out as a flicker of light behind the eyes;
a smile suppressed behind the lips;
a caress on your throbbing wound;
a caring word, soothing your woes,
a loving grasp of your finger tight…….
And you cannot miss it, if it is there!

I have a strange encounter with love;
its memory still mesmerizes me,
though long years have passed……

After a critical operation
and five days in ventilator,
the moment when my husband recognized me
with swollen eyes, bandaged head
and unsteady words….
I then knew what love is…….
It's a spring in the heart,
which sometimes wells up in the eyes….
and a feeling beyond words………….!

Very sweet poem Herbert!
I can't express what this means to me Herbert, excellent as always, and to think it is about me, even the 'promises unkept' parts, makes me smile with Joy. You are a generous wonderful talented man, and I am a very lucky woman to have you as my friend. You are the best, and I love you. Thank you, you humble me.
Thank you for the TEN, anonymous one of high class, beauty and may the Gods protect you. But who are you? H
