Love

Courtesy: A Dash Of Sunny

You are the jasmine night

And dew filled dawn

Of a babe cheek morn

 

I am always the thorn

To shield thy rose heart

From wormy word

 

Your banyan shade

Gives me rest

On a scorching day of distress

 

I long for that moonbeam smile

That’s buried under

Grief’s stormy clouds

  1. Whistles!!❤️💖This is absolutely exquisitely penned, Sumana 😀 I love the passion and longing in these lines; “I long for that moonbeam smile that’s buried under grief’s stormy clouds” sigh.. love makes us want to do things for others and to always see them content. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.❤️💖

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  2. Wonderful evocative images in this tenderly rendered piece. There is so much love in these lines. And the closing stanza:

    I long for that moonbeam smile
    That’s buried under
    Grief’s stormy clouds

    is so poignant and beautiful it, literally, brought me close to tears.

  3. Sigh. Sigh. Tears of love and gratitude. I am most moved by one line after another! Here I will only observe, such love makes us fiercely protective:
    “I am always the thorn
    To shield thy rose heart
    From wormy word”
    May we always feel the love and find the way.

Thank You :)
