I’ve always……always loved poetry.  I remember being in elementary school, sitting at my desk, writing cute little rhymes or poems on my dolphin and unicorn sunset notebook.

Yeah….I still have it.  It was that amazing.

I write poetry to say things that are otherwise hard to say.  I write to express love, hurt, joy.  I also love to read it.  Nothing is as beautiful as a sonnet read by someone you love.

Most all of the pieces I post will be happy and a love letter to someone, however, there may be a few in there that are not.  I hope some of you can use these as inspiration, as I have.  But if not, I hope they just make you feel good, as they always do to me.  1362

We Have Lived And Loved Together
by Charles Jefferys

We have lived and loved together
Through many changing years;
We have shared each other's gladness
And wept each other's tears;
I have known ne'er a sorrow
That was long unsoothed by thee;
For thy smiles can make a summer
Where darkness else would be.

Like the leaves that fall around us
In autumn's fading hours,
Are the traitor's smiles, that darken
When the cloud of sorrow lowers;
And through many such we've known, love,
Too prone, alas, to range,
We both can speak of one love
Which time can never change.

We have lived and loved together
Through many changing years,
We have shared each other's gladness
And wept each other's tears.
And let us hope the future,
As the past has been will be:
I will share with thee my sorrows,
And thou thy joys with me.
