To Have and To Hold

To Have and To Hold - WPress1


To have,
Our lives
Woven in time
And place
Spun from memories.


To hold,
With special cares
We’ve shared
To our days of old.


To have,
Of tender flesh
From tasks we’ve done.


To hold,
You now
Heartbeats within
The love
Of us, as one.

  1. Lovely Eric ! You are very technical in your poetry while I just write with almost no knowledge of it. This piece is quite different from what I have read from you. Really nice !
