Hidden Love

( By Jan Phillips )

Your arms hold so tender
Your thoughts are so sweet,
It makes me feel safe
Whenever we meet;
Your shoulders show courage
Your lips taste of desire,
When I’m close to you
My blood turns to liquid fire;
I think of you
Each hour of the day,
With thoughts of special love
Though why I cannot say;
I guess its because
In every way,
You are the light of my life
And the ending of my day;
Your respect and admiration
Is all that I require,
But to be the love of your life
Is what I desire;
If ever I lose you
My body may not die,
But the sun will be behind a cloud
And the heavens will cry;
My heart will still beat
With a love that will not die,
In a body filled with sorrow
And thoughts that cannot lie;
For I have loved you always
With everything I had,
Some people think this love is wrong
I cannot believe its bad;
Without you
My life would be bare,
Although the memories I have
Will always be there;
So give me some hope
That your love shall be mine,
And together we’ll walk
Until the end of time.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    Really excellent narrative,devotional poem.On a professional,collegiate note,the only editorial point I need to highlight is the work’s inital lack of punctuation,which I added subsequently for the readers’ ease.But the qualities and merits of “Hidden Love” are impressive.
