Timeless Love

Excitement builds
As you wait for the day
To see your old friend
On an arranged holiday

As the day draws near
You become quite giddy
You plan to meet each other
In a faraway city

Questions cross your mind
And you’re apprehensive
You can only wonder
If she’ll find you offensive

When the day finally comes
A strange pit forms in your gut
You know you must play it safe
No matter what

Shaking in your boots
You pray she still finds you attractive
Considering your age
You hope she’ll be adaptive

Stepping off the plane
You see her slender form
She smiles and waves at you
From the small open door

More questions flood your mind
About what she’ll think
Will she still want you
Or will this be a huge mistake

You clutch the flowers tighter
A bouquet bought just for her
She begins to run to you
And all becomes a blur

Tears quickly emerge
You’ve captured her awaiting heart
Instantly you wonder
How you ever made it apart

Clutching one another
As if your life depends on this embrace
You both feel emotions
Which cannot be erased

Neither one of you
Can hold back the steady stream of tears
The warmth of her body
Erases all your fears

Finally you know for certain
She’s always been the one
You eagerly kiss her lips
And look forward to some fun

She reciprocates your affections
And smiles in satisfaction
Nothing can thwart
This overwhelming attraction

It’s been many long years
Yet somehow love remained
You realize now
Your love was not in vain

Written by, Michelle Cook

I haven’t felt much like writing lately, so I decided instead to share one of the poems from my book, Beneath the Canopy. I wrote my poem, Timeless Love, back in February 2016. This poem was inspired by an old article about a couple who had been separated during WWII. They lost all contact, she thought he’d died, and both married other people. Eventually, against all odds, a letter one of them had sent during the war finally got delivered. This letter caused them to reunite, and since both had already outlived their spouses, they were able to rekindle their romance from long ago. I was so touched by the story that I wrote my poem, Timeless Love. This poem is one of my personal favorites, and if you like this poem, please check out my book. It’s free to read if you have a Kindle unlimited membership.

    1. Thanks Devang, I hope you like my book. I’ve never really done much advertising for it, so probably not too many even know about it. I hope my inspiration for writing comes back soon. I miss it myself and I think just being so sick this month has really wiped all my energy out of me. I hope you’re having a good week. Enjoy your gym time! 😃


      1. I really wish you get that inspiration back.
        Just remember, you are amazing and wp needs your knowledge and energy. So, I hope to see you back on a regular basis. Keep smiling and take proper rest. Best wishes

            1. Then maybe you should! 😁
              My intention is to motivate you by giving a topic.
              I am not trying to ask for collaboration cleverly ( I will ask in a decent manner in future).
              June 5th is world environment day (Sunday). A poem from you will be so good. You are master in creating perfect emotions through words.

  2. what a beautiful heartfelt poem Dear Michelle. I was actually getting shivers when I was reading it and then I read the story and I understood why. What are the odds, what are the chances and what a dream come true. So tenderly written.
    so beautiful. Is your book in hard copy too?

        1. Awww that’s a bummer. I wonder if there’s anything I can do to change that. I looked on the Amazon.in site and noticed they have me listed as Dr. Michelle Cook… definitely not true! Although I’m tickled someone thought it might be nice to elevate me to that level. If only… lol 😂


Here's a shiny copper penny for your thoughts... ❤️
