Clement Love #AtoZChallenge

Source
To look at you isn't easy,
You aren't the same to me,
But I sit here with you,
Wanting my thoughts to stray free.

Knowing you don't love me,
Knowing you aren't mine,
I find solace just being with you,
Sharing my words and some wine.

I fear gazing at you,
Letting my eyes reveal all.
But for once, I wish you would,
And show - how my heart is in a sprawl.

If you knew what’s in my heart,
Our bond would change.
Or maybe it won’t,
My feelings are so strange.

Let things remain the way they are,
Let us meet every day.
I enjoy this time with you,
All I want is for you to stay.

My love for you is eternal,
Like the stars in the night.
All I dream is to love you,
All I want is a better plight.

  4. I had read these lines somewhere, 'Just to see you and hear you will be joy ever now...' Love is undemanding and unconditional, beautiful.

  6. Nice writings. Reflects a noble mind's thoughts, outpouring in this not-so-noble world. And that's a fact.

    1. Thanks Chrys. :) I couldn't find any fitting picture for calm love and therefore decided to use this one instead. Swans are after all a sign of unrelenting love.
