By Charles Robert Lindholm

The seeds of love he planted

grew deeply in my heart

He wrapped his love

around my world

in a romantic

work of art 

I’ve lived through all

of Love’s seasons.

And at last

I’ve learned

the reasons

why it is

love withers and dies

why it brings heartache

and tears to your eyes

it’s hard to concede

his Love like a weed

now needs rooting

out of my heart

I am so grateful for you spending your precious time with my words! An Awesome and Beautiful Gift, Sweet K!!


    1. So honored and happy that this reached out to you JM!! I think you need to put things down with ink on paper so your feelings and experiences are captured, saved and shared with the world! Write your heartaches!


    1. Yes, as always you found the very best part and the whole summation of the piece! Thank you so much for the very kind words! You know I’m always aiming to “Hit You”! LOL! But in a kind and gentle way! Ha!

      I really loved the seed of inspiration from “How I Lost My Chains”.

          1. I am honoured and privileged to be a target Charles. I think with all poetry we fire into the unknown in the hope that someone may be wounded (in the nicest possible sense).

          2. Oh, there you go again! “in the nicest possible sense”. Cracked me up. I do love to hear from you My Friend! Yes, sometimes I think about blowing the dandelion seeds into the air when I hit “Publish”. As you say, you never know where they may land or who they may touch.
