Letter 8 – 01.04.20 Short Love Poems

So the world is pretty crazy right now. And by pretty crazy I mean we’re facing a seemingly out of control global pandemic that has caused unrest and lockdowns unlike anything that has been seen before.

Right now, we are all literally making history – which is a crazy thing to think about. Amongst the chaos, I am currently existing in my own little oasis at home where things are moving along pretty normally. I have masses of uni work that keeps me distracted, my sister and I have been baking and I can still take Daisy out for her walk to get some fresh air. But every so often I spend a few hours reading the news and get overwhelmed with the tragedies many other people are facing. I realise how lucky I am to be surrounded by love and family.

At this scary time I thought I would try to spread some love by posting a few very short love poems that I wrote a while ago and frequently return to as they always make me smile. I hope you like them 🙂

1.

So if you hold me now,

Take my hand and drown these thoughts out,

Pull me close and whisper,

You’ll be alright, I am with you now,

Just kiss me ’till the sun goes down.

2.

And it’s not been easy,

At times I though one of us would break,

But we’ve kept the pieces together,

Oh, what a story our love makes.

3.

Everyday I thank the stars that I found you,

Everything you say sets my heart on fire.

And I can’t help but smile when your beautiful brown eyes,

Are staring at mine.

It’s like a scene from a movie, a line from a song,

A story to tell when we’re old, and while we’re young,

And I’d like to thank you, for being so strong,

‘Cos I can’t live without you, now I know I’ve found the one.

Stay strong everyone. I know many people will be feeling lonely, scared and will be worried about loved ones who they are separated from. But this will pass. Please stay at home. And remember, love always wins.
