Jaan

Love me because...
you know no other way to live

Love me because...
it is in my arms you find comfort

Love me because...
it is in my eyes you see hope

Love because...

without it your soul will cease to exist !

Beethoven said it nicely...

Good morning, on July 7

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

(Yes i know what movie it was featured in - it doesn't detract from the words though...)

This post is as close to the Divine Truth that an ordinary mortal like myself will probably ever get.

Thanks for affirming those truths that stick with me every second of the day, every moment of my existence.

Thanks jaan...

Thank you Desert Demon. Your poetry sings to my soul. Here is my response:
" I love her because
she was the oriental wind
that gathered the leaves of my heart.

I love her because
She was the African storm
That illuminated my life

I love her because
In her arms I found solace

I love her because
In her eyes I saw
The dance of our unborn children

I love her because
The sun is her breath
On my aching skin

I love her because
The moon is
The light of her laughter

I love her because
I can hear her gentle voice
Calling me in the winter breeze

Just like I am calling her
Every day
Every night
Every moment

Every
Agonised
Breath

Without her.

That's why I love her."

When you're tired of the desert, drop in to my oasis and I'll write and recite you poetry we will both understand.
Take care.

anon - thanx for the visit , universal truths are few and obvious - i wish you all of them :)

howling lamb - WOW , I would be honoured, however the desert sands seem to be a better setting for such longing , looking forward to your contributions :)

Thanks Desert Demon. I am indifferent to the setting. I will join you some day in the desert and we can shelter under a palm tree and listen to the whispers of the universe. Keep up the great work. Your poetry mesmerises me. Looking forward to seeing more.
Take care.

I knew you would see through my veil. The slits in the burqa of my poem were for your eyes
only!
