Headline Poem 2/14/14 -- Loyalty

(Photo credit me)

In honor of Valentine's Day, a not-too-mushy poem about loyalty and love.


There is nothing more beautiful than a man in love
Weakened by a woman, and unafraid 
Constant as the break of day,
Loyal like thoughtful children who gather to listen, and to tell their tales of adventure
and sleep
Despite the arguments and miscalculations, 
He is comforted knowing she'll never leave
For although sometimes there is no bliss, there are always half-asleep reflections,
Woven apologies,
And the moment their hands meet
There is nothing more beautiful than knowing the birds will sing in the morning,
And she, loyal, will be waiting with a kiss.
