What If I Told You…

Passion’s paisley swirls,
Silk, sensual ambers,
Amethyst’s amour,
Dreams delicate, embroidered,
My heart softly woven,
So deeply in you.

Yesterday fraught,
Fractured bruised, broken,
My life void of color,
Heart’s cloth torn asunder,
No respite, no reprieve,
An emptiness echoed.

But dawn now has come,
Daybreak’s endless new joy,
Gentle finger tip caress,
Merciful gathering my cloth,
You binding my wounds
In fabric of life.

Trussing my ache,
Healing my hurt,
Knowing my needs,

Your grace now my mending.

What if I told you,
My world  you’ve  restored?

What if I told you,
My failings you’ve soothed?

What if I told you,
My tomorrow, now clear?

Touch me again…
Sense my tapestry again…
Feel deeply my fabric…

And listen,

With your fingertips listen…

What if I told you…

I’ll love you forever?

  1. one of my favourite things to do is feel the textures of fabric and the vibrations it produces, your poem today is smooth and delicate, like heated silk on a cool cheek, that’s how I feel as I read it. So full of life, a very special poem Bill.

      1. it does very much. it is also the respect we give others that dictates this, we can never take back what we say or never say. i see how carefully you chose and place your poetic thoughts, you have that reverence to sacredness of words and its meaning. I hope I am making sense now!!

      2. Oh…Gina…that makes complete sense to me. And, I’m honored to know that you appreciate my thoughts, and how I try to weave those words and senses together.

        You’ve made my night, my friend.

        So many thanks!

        Thanks so much and the feeling is mutual..

        Hope you’re having a great Friday evening!!!

        I’m hoping to get back into writing after the first of the year and hopefully get a chance to get out and take some pictures too.

        The flu hit my house over Christmas I never got it but everyone else did. They’re feeling better now .

      2. Oh…I’m so sorry about the flu! Ugh.

        So much look forward to reading your words again, and seeing your images.

        Jamie. I suspect your family is enormously grateful to you for taking care of them during that difficult time. I suspect as well that you’ve given them a great gift in giving yourself to their recovery.

        That’s the good stuff my friend.

        That’s the good stuff.
