Read Love Poems

Long Denied

by Crystal Rose Blooming

This morning I woke and to my surprise
No more teardrops filled my eyes
For the first time since that horrid spring
I heard the birds sweetly sing

I noticed flowers in my front yard
Smelled their fragrance with regard
In the mirror a smiling face
A soulful look has been replaced

What is the feeling I have inside?
Happiness long denied.
I was once a loving bride
Filled with joy filled with pride

Ripped from my arms way to soon
Lost to me and his platoon
In a dream he came to me
I release you now and set you free

Therefore, I let go but will not forget
Sadness is no longer a looming threat
His love I will carry for eternity
He gave back my life so I can be me
