Soft, soft, my love

by poetrydiary

Soft, soft, my love;
warm, warm, your heart;
long, long, the road,
while we are apart.

Slow, slow, days flow,
hard, hard, each task;
far, far, your arms,
no more do I ask.

Soon, soon, I yearn,
closer still to be;
stay, stay, my love,
for all eternity.

I wrote this poem when I felt I might be in love a while ago. It was her favourite. I just found it again and felt like publishing it. Eternity wasn’t quite achievable in the event, but I’m still glad we met.
