The Light That Shines

A light that shines from those ice blue eyes…
The glow of love
A gentle kiss from those stern lips…
The flow of love
Slender fingers that have poked, tickled, slapped, punched, stroked my brow…
The touch of love
Endless smiles that shine through tears of loss or pain…
They show your love
Lithe, fit, as hard as nails, skin soft as silk and laughter lines from laughing hard…
The crows of love
Sharing laughter because we know the truth…
We crow for love
Words of wisdom come to mind but it’s in those eyes I find that love lasts forever between us…
They show your love
My lying, cheating, stealing, fighting, losing, spiralling out of control
Doesn’t slow your love
The police, bad friends, pissed off neighbours, officers of various bureaus
Could cause a blow of love
Most times, though it’s a look, a movement of millimetres
And I am told, with love.
The truth that you will be gone from here, ‘to a better place’ is enough to let…
You go with love
