Love; a River

Always flowing
changing, growing.

This love I feel for you.
Yet forever: true blue.

At inception,
meant for fun.

But then it changed.
Everything re-arranged.

The glacier melted,
by you: smelted.

Rock metal rivers through the wold ran.
Water river: Love, from ice, began.

Metal ahead of us rolled.
Various types, our fave: gold.

Laid the bed on which our love would flow.
And it surely has, don't you know.

That bed, though metal
did not smoothly settle.

So, we've had to battle our way
through many a turbulent day.

But though we may bubble and froth
We do not over-long remain wroth.

As does a real river,
our love grows, always it does deliver.

And when, one day, this mortal life has its end,
our river of love will, into the infinite ocean blend.

Not a drop will be lost.
No matter the cost.

For the infinite mind
is ever so kind.

There we will reside.
Amid the tide.


I'm LINKED and at Raising Homemakers and at Inspire Me Monday!

I like the idea of love being like a river. Neat metaphor here. Thanks for sharing at Poetry Jam!

Love this, Tori! The rhyme and rhythm just help this flow right along. Especially love this stanza:

"And when, one day, this mortal life has its end,
our river of love will, into the infinite ocean blend."

I enjoyed the comments b/c (horrible to admit) I don't have the appreciation of poetry that I would like to have.
