Silent Love

I knew it then, for I could tell.
Twas Silent Love in which I fell.

A painful choice for Heaven's sake.
And one no man would like to make.

But I was torn in part, you see.
By beauty, charm, and destiny.

I gathered up and off I went.
As if compelled to my torment.

And greeting there, my love confessed.
I made a simple child's request.

But thinking now of her and me,
I guess it was as meant to be.

A love the angels sing in song.
It's in such love I do belong.

A timeless chord from up above.
A sanctified and Silent Love.

Your words are always a reflection of a beautiful heart and soul. I find you write with such grace and beauty and always from the heart, such a rare treat.
'A timeless chord from up above. A sanctified and Silent Love ' - rarely to meet such words from the heart, the words of silent love and passion at the same time.Your poetry has a grand feeling very rarely to meet in general, and it makes your style truly unique.Thanks for sharing, Greenwolfe. A.
Yes. We should know to turn our dejected love into a graceful one like this on reflection. This is positivism. There is a similar theme handled by me in 'Yours affectionately'. You may read and comment.
