Seasons Of Our Love



                                                       He came to me in the summer
                                                       when meadows were lush and green
                                                       my heart melted in his hands
                                                       a young woman, turned eighteen

                                                       Our love shined like the stars
                                                       under a clear, August sky
                                                       held captive by its presence
                                                       so beautiful, we couldn't deny

                                                       We walked together in September
                                                       when wild Asters were in bloom
                                                       a perfect show of Golden Rod
                                                       for an October bride and groom

                                                       Two hearts joined as one
                                                       I now carried his name
                                                       as October leaves were falling
                                                       before the first frost came

                                                       Through the cold, winter season
                                                       with wings against the wind
                                                       the radiance of love's embers
                                                       warmed our hearts once again

                                                       In the spring time of our love
                                                       the dawn washed it with crystal dew
                                                       it blossomed in rare form
                                                       like the flowers, it grew and grew

                                                       God surely did design it all
                                                       with his love, and us in mind
                                                       the seasons of our love
                                                       will continue to forever shine

I wrote this one for my husband for our Anniversary.  42 years on the 10th.. Seems like a lifetime but then again it has.. We were so young and didn't know much but we knew we loved each other and that's all that mattered.. Today as we look back on it all, we ask ourselves what was it like before then.. We can't answer that  because it seems like a lifetime ago..A lot of things have changed a long the way, a few wrinkles, well maybe more than a few. A Loving Son and a beautiful Daughter in law. Three Granchildren and one Great Grandson. A wonderful Home filled with love and happiness..What more could we ask for. And our Love is more strong than ever before..God surely has blessed us and for that we are truly grateful.. Meanwhile, we'll continue to grow old together and face what comes our way.. Blessings, Susie

  13. Hi Susie, oh, this is one of the most beautiful poems you have ever written. It is so tender. You really captured the timeless feeling that comes with being in love with our husbands. I often have a hard time writing about this subject in my own poetry because the feelings are so strong, I can't put them into words. You did a wonderful job. Have a lovely day ahead and Happy Anniversary dear friend! Love, Delisa :)
