There are many beautiful things which fill our lives with such wonder and excitement, but I believe that none can really compare to the deepest, most passionate, and strongest feeling that we all get from love.
It is so easy to take this emotion for granted, and to utter those three little words, ‘I love you!’, without meaning it with true sincerity and devotion. For me, it is a very important declaration of the endless, pure love and loyalty that you hold for a person. It is a solem pledge to a sweetheart. soul-mate, loved-one, or star-crossed lover, given freely from the heart, to shows that person, just how special they are, and how much they mean to another.
I wanted to write a poem which would reflect this, and capture the real essence, of how amazing love can be!
Three little words by Paul Featherstone
I could see the sun rise, each morning,
Watch it setting, just before the night,
Be amazed and transfixed, in wonder,
As I behold, such a wondrous sight,
A perfect sky; made up of rich colours,
Shades of orange, pink, red and blue,
But there is no view, more breathtaking,
Whenever I see, the true beauty of you.
As I gaze upwards, towards Heaven,
Counting the stars, which shine above,
The moon moves, throughout its phases,
Filling my romantic heart, with love,
So overwhelmed, by its majestic power,
How it commands, the waves of the sea,
Though no force on Earth, can measure,
Against the eternal hold, you have on me.
It is often said, ‘Time waits for no one!’
You have to grab Life, and seize the day,
Make the most of the skills you are given,
Before the sands of opportunity, slip away,
To explore new challenges and experiences,
Creating memories, which will last forever,
But the fondest, precious moments for me,
Are the special times, we spend together!
There are many ways, to show affection,
To fill someone, with the deepest emotion,
A sweet serenade, that teases the senses,
Or, the prettiest gift, to show one’s devotion,
Love letters written, by the fairest of hand,
Moving poems, and subtle gestures too,
But the strongest of all, is three little words,
Letting you know always, that ‘I love you!’
