Love is Like a Garden

 

Are not the flowers more joyous

not for their beauty alone,

more beautiful they are

because their uniqueness does shone.

 

Should a singer never sing

a sad love song

within a symphony of bliss,

people will think love is blasé.

Love is like a garden

cultivate it.

 

Should a heart never to feel

the ache of love missed,

how does this heart learn to rejoice

in the happiness of

an unexpected kiss.

 

Should one’s arms always hold you tight

throughout the day

and when the stars shine at night,

what wondrous mysteries await in the morning light.

 

Should a smile be at your beck and call,

if a teardrop never falls,

true romance, true love

will never be replete.

 

Are not the flowers more joyous

not just for their beauty alone,

more beautiful they are

because their uniqueness does shone.

 

Love is like a garden,

cultivate it.

A writer’s note:

After having just posted yellow daffodils, among other upbeat love poems, I hesitated posting April Foils Love, a love lost poem.  Then, while listening to live music one night, I had this thought, ‘If a singer never sings a sad love song within a set of happy love songs, people will think love is blasé.’  And so I posted April Foils Love.  Thanks to the nice comment from Skye (The Sanctuary of My Heart)  on April Foils Love, I responded with just that thought; and then wrote Love is like a Garden.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful, Steve. You truly do get better and better with each writing. Each time I see your name in my reader, I get truly happy. Thank you for the shout out. You are a blessing.

    • Thank you. I personally believe that love is a partnership, and if the word ‘sacrifice’ arises, it is defined as the mutual willingness of both partners to ‘accept, compromise, or change’ to embrace and understand a heartfelt harmony.

  2. Another lovely poem, Steve, and your words are a lovely metaphor to the need of both partners giving their share to a successful relationship…I love these lines, too:
    Should a heart never to feel

    the ache of love missed,
    how does this heart learn to rejoice
    in the happiness of
    an unexpected kiss.
