About A Million Times


I fell in love once

About a million times

My world narrowed

To the singular

The one-in-a-million

Could ne’er be replaced


A unique loving beauty

Soulmate, blessed fate

The air that I breathe

But more breeze than wind

And, indeed, a common thread

Was woven within each


For as the winds blow

Each breeze becomes history

Carrying the scent of next

Old flames prefaced by “ex”

And I survive, barely alive

Only to fall in love again


I fell in love once

About a million times

    What a beautifully written romantic piece. We can fall passionately over and over again and often with the same person. Hope the weather is beautiful today. Sending love and hugs Jonikins

  4. A million times is what it takes. A most suitable form for such a beautiful poem. Lovely work indeed my friend!

    I love that this piece starts and finishes the same way. Of course, love with someone is unique, but the promise of a new relationship renews our hope. Thank goodness many people find love again.
