ONE HEART – NOT TWO

ONE HEART – NOT TWO

By Charles Robert Lindholm   3-15-2017  at 4:45 a.m.

I love to see you smile

when I finally am awake

 ONE HEART- NOT TWO - COUPLE SMILING IN BED

 

but then I have to pinch myself

so I know there’s no mistake

 

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - I HAVE TO PINCH MYSELF

 ONE HEART - NOT TWO - AND THEN I COUNT MY BLESSINGS

And then I count my blessings

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - AND THEN I COUNT MY BLESSINGS #3

                                                                                                          ONE HEART - NOT TWO - AND THEN I COUNT MY BLESSINGS #2

each hour of the day  

  ONE HEART - NOT TWO - EACH HOUR OF THE DAY

and gently hold you in my heart

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - AND GENTLY HOLD YOU IN MY HEART #4

while you are far away       

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - WHILE YOU ARE FAR AWAY

 And when I fall asleep each night          

I dream a dream of you

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - AND WHEN I FALL ASLEEP EACH NIGHT

 

I hold you oh, so close to me

and hear one heart – not two ONE HEART - NOT TWO - LISTENING TO HEARTBEAT

And as you softly sing to me

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - SOFTLY SINGING

we slowly drift away

in each other’s arms

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - IN EACH OTHER'S ARMS

toward the,

 dawning of the day

ONE HEART - NOT TWO - DAWNING OF THE DAY

  1. This is a most beautiful poem, dreamy, and gentle and full of adoration, oh she is very lucky, this person who gets such attention and undivided attention. you tug on my heart strings with such lovely words. Master with the words, I almost felt like singing to it!

    1. I’m so glad you liked it! “Almost”?? I missed the mark? Oh, shoot!

      You have rightly divined that this was written from the female viewpoint but it is also a shared experience of love, trust and surrender to the other that makes it glorious?

      Maybe you should give me some hints on topics that make your heart sing??

        1. I feel like I missed the game winning shot at the buzzer! Ok, next?

          So, a poem on losing love and never finding it in the same poem? Or just one or the other? Oh, well maybe I should go and dig out some of my old, sad poems. So, how does a poem that makes you sad make you want to sing???

        1. Yes, very humbling! It is on the other hand so much fun to see something grow and to meet such great new people! Funny looking back, isn’t it, that this all started from your one little comment and then your suggestion to start a Meme? As my wife says about these types of things – Meant to be!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

          1. And I you. My own backside is in my favorite spot to write this backside of night. It is very fun to watch this, I agree and what an amazing group of people and writers growing up around us! While it was a comment, I have to share the profits of the energy with you. You recognized it as something more than a clever remark and have been its greatest advocate! We shall share and enjoy in its continuing development!

            1. Yes, The very best thing is the wonderful people that are hearing the call from “The Backside Of The Night” and coming to join in. What a great group!!

              You are such a Friend and Kindred Spirit! You are too gracious and generous with your praise! I think you win the prize for being the biggest advocate and most effective! I’m content to be the sidekick! Thanks for your willingness to share in the delight this brings. I think it will bring together a very positive and uplifting group!! Just keep those clever remarks coming. Your words in that comment just called out to me like in “I Am Not A Poet”. They had a story to tell.

              Hope you are having a great weekend!

    1. Wow! Thank you so much for you comments! You are forever the insightful one! Not sure I was intentionally intending that. What I was going for was tying a visual image to the words. Maybe it worked? Thanks again for the kind comments and for coming to visit!!

  2. There are such sweet moments in our lives like the fresh feeling of being in love. We can love someone and be past the “honey moon phase.” Love is often unromantic. It is sacrifice, give and take, as well as lots of communication. We get tired because of our daily life and need to rekindle our romance on an ongoing basis. I totally believe that love and that “butterfly” feeling takes effort on both people, especially after years go by and you have kids…etc. 🙂

    1. Very eloquently said! You are so right. It does take effort and attention to stay in that “In Love” feeling. Like tending a garden? Oh, I love that phrase “that Butterfly feeling”!!! I’m going to store that one in my Word Bank. So cool! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and to comment. I really enjoy the insights in your replies!!

    2. Ok, I have opened an account for you in my Word Bank! In the last few days I have written several pieces that after looking back at your post above I can see you helped provide a seed for with your comment, “Butterfly feeling”. I haven’t posted them all but you can check out “When You Come To Me”.

      I am afraid this makes you an Official Member of my “Inspirators Gang” for providing Seeds Of Inspiration! It’s actually, pretty good company – see DavyD, Singledust and Sailorpoet as other members of the Gang! LOL! I have a “bad?” habit of rereading comments.
      Cheers to You
