Love  Anew

Valentine Day – 14th Feb, 2022

https://allpoetry.com/poem/16370458-Love–Anew-by-Henrychukwuma717

Starting afresh, I met and loved again 

This time, I pray for the best after my worst days 

***

Like a rose flower cuddled with white ribbon, 

She is wrapped in gracefulness and beauty

My heart leaps and beats for her 

***

We shared and laughed for a while 

In person and through the phone, 

But the closeness grew and grew into love

***

Known each other just for a while 

But It seemed like one year, 

The longing for each other was real

We felt and admitted it

***

Can we walk through life’s road holding hands together?

I think we can, what about you?

Can we share happiness and sadness together?

Yes, we can, what do you think?

Can we protect each other and succeed together?

I believe we can, what about you?

Can we share the worst experiences with sincerity and trust?

I think we can, what do you think?

***

As we get to know each other, 

Ponder on these questions, 

Hold them in your hearts 

And your dreams will become clear 

***

I cannot promise you the sun

but I can help you shine 

I cannot take you to the moon

but I can share everything with you

and make your sadness go away 

I cannot give you the world

but I can walk through life’s thorns together with you 

***

Clasped hand in hand, 

Let’s walk the path of love

Loving and caring for each other 

Not minding what anyone says 

Caring less what life throws at us

***

  1. I loved your seventh stanza Henry … the words resonated within my soul .. 🌝🌏
    “I cannot promise you the sun
    but I can help you shine
    I cannot take you to the moon
    but I can share everything with you
    and make your sadness go away
    I cannot give you the world
    but I can walk through life’s thorns together with you
