Ours to Keep

by ibelievedhim   Jul 18, 2009

I look at you with a smile on my face
For finally you and I have a place
Together at last, just you and me,
allowed to talk and laugh and be

The empty void and all the fears
are filled with love and future years
In your arms, safe at long last,
not worried about your hurtful past

All loves forgotten as we lay in bed,
closing my eyes as I rest my head,
my heart being stronger than ever before
A new chapter, an open door,

hoping that as we walk through
neither of us will need more glue
No broken pieces, nor falling apart
just togetherness, a fresh new start

Holding you close as I sing our song,
thinking you lusted, but I was wrong
You chose me, and we're taking the leap
I hope ours is a love to keep

    A difficult subject to broach but as in all of your poems I have read treated with heart and understanding know your fear and understand your need to get it into the open so you can see what you have decided is right.
