Loving Heart

Written for:

image source: the write tribe


The heart is the vault where love resides
It's true nature is compassionate and kind
Love is a universal energy, a state of bliss
Individually defined and mine is this ...


Love is your shoulder when I need some rest
Love is a kind word when I'm not at my best
Love is a sweet smile that lights up your face
Love is your unique style no one can replace

Love is a wonder like a blooming rose
Love is that familiar touch that helps me repose
Love is a warm hug that soothes my mind
Love is that universal spark eternal and divine

Love is that energy that brings me peace
Love is to give but also to receive
Love is a little flame that touches my soul
Love is a tender heart that makes me whole

~x~

Wishing you all a very Happy Valentines Day.

  1. So many beautiful phrases in this poem, Suzy. Hard to choose a favorite, but if I were pressed to do so I would choose "Love is a little flame that touches my soul." Happy Valentine's Day to YOU, Suzy.

    1. Thanks Mary - my favourite line too. I actually started with the last 2 lines, but in the end decided to end with them instead. Love and hugs.

  7. I enjoyed the sense that the narrator is affirming someone's love reaching her...as opposed to what she knows shows her own love. I hope she gets a similar poem and doesn't have to ask, "Do you feel my love."
