How Will You Know?


Your hands will never touch

All the things I feel

Your eyes will never see

This sight for me so real

Your lips will never kiss

A lover found more true

You’ll never know the bliss

That comes from loving you

Your heart will never hold

The love that swells in mine

Your thoughts will be left cold

With love so undefined

Your tongue will never taste

The sweetness of your wine

Your time you’ll never waste

The way I’ve wasted mine

Yours soul won’t shed the tear

In words whispered low

And there is found the fear

That you may never know

My only hope, the love I send

In all the little things

Will add up somehow in the end

To become your truly knowing

    Oh so beautiful… and I feel like the expression of the protagonists hurt builds throughout, laying with each line. Lovely rhymes.

    This is really beautiful Brad, so romantic. These lines are so lovely:

    “You’ll never know the bliss
    That comes from loving you
    Your heart will never hold
    The love that swells in mine”

    Someone is tickling your romantic nature, that is obvious my friend. Perhaps several I like these pieces a lot. Sending you love my friend, hugs to you, Jonikins xoxoxo

      I wish your presumption were true, but that is not the case.

        Well I don’t understand why not Brad. I think it just gets harder. I have a very pretty friend who is a police woman who is a supervisor. She is intelligent and super nice but she can’t seem to find a boyfriend because she is a nice young woman. She is in her late thirties. I don’t get it. It is scary putting yourself out there.
        I do get that and it has to be harder now but it takes trust. Sorry I am sure you know all this, I am glad you are my good friend. Sending lots of love and hugs to you Brad. ❤️🤗❤️🤗

    This is so beautiful! Love is something to cling to, and if only we could see how much love others hold for us.
