Love Is

Love Is

Love is

Seeing your face in a fresh morning light

A bowl and two spoons with Angel Delight

Knowing there’s days when we kiss and don’t fight.

Love is

 

Love is

Carving our names in the heart of the oak

You adjusting my tie, so I don’t choke

Sprinting like Usain through bonfire smoke

Love is

 

Love is

Holding hands under dim lit gazebos

With our last fiver, dining Al Fresco

At a school dance, the Pogo not Disco

Love is

 

Love is

Snoring together in front of the telly

Handling my socks, despite them being smelly

On the A40,  giving it welly

Love is

 

Love is

Albums and photos, we’ve still yet to see

Pebbles at Brighton, tide up to our knees

Fish and chip headlines, for you and for me

Love is

Dedicated to my beautiful wife Sarah (Mrs.D). Without her love and support, the pen just wouldn’t flow.

I love this, Davy. Clever of you to use ‘Usain’ without forcing the rhyme with his surname.

Once again you help dispel the stereotypical ‘man of few words’ image of the northern male. A beautiful and personal write marra.

Oh so beautiful…you’ve captured love, the many forms it takes in the momentary and in the ordinary of every day. Blessings to you and Sarah. ♥♥♥

Davy D, didn’t I say the Northern poets are the romantics. How you prove me right. This is so loving and fun at the same time. Humour is part of love. You start off so very dreamy and intersperse with every day events. All shared with love and humour.
Happy Valentine to you and Sarah.

    Thank you Miriam for your kind words and hope you had a good day too. Mrs. D whisked me away for an afternoon English Tea and then on to the pics to see Darkest Hour. I am glad you enjoyed the poem and beneath the concrete us Northern Poets do have a little love 🙂
