Your Poems/Songs About True Love!

Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 11:36 AM

Hey! Have any of you ever written about True Love? I just finished this poem I wrote about my grandparents. Please share your pieces, songs or poems, on this thread!


1/10/13
They Danced

The wind ensnared itself in her dark curls
As she, bright-eyed, entered into the world.
At fifteen, the most beautiful girl in town
Could smile a smile that wiped erased any evidence of the sun having gone down.

He was her dance teacher with a twenty-two face
And gentle eyes that settled you in your place.
One evening he found that girl crying the alleyway,
About to crumble and fade.

She had broken it off with the captain of the football team-
He coveted her innocence so she snipped the seam.
Why did all the boys see her only as a little dark-haired treat
With large green eyes and lips so sweet?

That man with smooth moves took her hand and said,
“Class is about to start inside, but we can try it out here instead.”
He helped her back up till she stood on her own like a tree with the strongest roots.
And in those big brown eyes she realized that he was awkwardly cute.
She gripped his hand with red eyes.
“Thank you,” she replied.

He brushed a tangled curl from off her face and grinned mischievously.
“If you don’t learn this move, I won’t marry you,” he said and she laughed.
He put his hand gently on her waist-
And they danced.

Some named it love, but they knew that some things never needed to be named.
And they sang along to Burl Ives whenever it rained,
In honor of their first date when she kissed him in the middle of a cloudburst,
To a song on the radio as they gladly fell headfirst.

And at sixteen she wasn’t able to stand her ground when it came to math,
But he sat down with her and went over the books among the fear of finals and laughs.
And the day the results came in, she ran into his arms.
She had almost cried from joy at the B minus, smearing cherry lipstick on his cheeks.
Then, he put his hand gently on her waist-
And they danced.

...The sky shimmered that day in early August.
Eighteen had only graced her last week.
She watched, dumbstruck, as he got down one knee.
Tears shimmered behind his glasses.

After the answer, he put his hand gently on her waist-
And they danced.

...The leaves burned that day in mid-September.
A borrowed white dress from the neighbor’s that was the silkiest envy
Brushed against her skin as she walked down that church aisle.
And afterwards they sat together at the party alone, holding hands over the fire’s lingering embers.

But then, he put his hand gently on her waist -
And they danced.

But most of you don’t know jealous angels can be-
Just ask my friend Lee.
If that stranger in the paper had held the wheel sober,
Then the dream would never have been over.
I wonder how he told the kids the next morning.
...And I wonder if he ever wished to hear her again complain of his snoring.

But, true love goes on and on.
That’s not something you can ever stop-
Because more than forty years passed before he too was gone.
And when he met her in the next life, I know that-
They danced.

He put his hand gently on her waist-
And they danced.
They danced.

And they sang along to Burl Ives whenever it rained,
In honor of their first date when she kissed him in the middle of a cloudburst...

    "One True Love"

    Verse 1
    He looks at her as she passes by,
    A wistful glance is in his eye.
    He follows her down the hall,
    Gets her number, promises to call.

    They only ever go out once.
    It was no more than a simple crush.
    After tonight, they don't speak again,
    Until she goes out with one of his friends.

    Chorus
    Love is patient, kind, and true;
    This is what I want from you.
    Steer away from what the world tells us to.
    Love is enduring and lasting and strong,
    Unlike the brokenness of a country song,
    And real love is never really gone.
    This is why I'll wait for just the right man,
    Someone like you who will understand.
    You'll be for me what no one else can,
    And I'll say, "The truth about love is
    I can only find it with you."

    Verse 2
    She followed him off a treacherous brink,
    Did things her old self wouldn't have dreamed.
    She knew when she met him it'd be a mistake,
    But still she stayed 'til he let her heart break.

    Now she feels broken and all alone,
    It's been months since she left home.
    And he's had a dozen girlfriends since then,
    Including the one she once called her friend.

    Chorus
    Love is patient, kind, and true;
    This is what I want from you.
    Steer away from what the world tells us to.
    Love is enduring and lasting and strong,
    Unlike the brokenness of a country song,
    And real love is never really gone.
    This is why I'll wait for just the right man,
    Someone like you who will understand.
    You'll be for me what no one else can,
    And I'll say, "The truth about love is
    I can only find it with you."

    Verse 3
    Since high school, they called it love,
    But neither really knew what it was.
    They could't make it work in the real world,
    He left her for some college girl.

    She moved away to help move on,
    When she comes back, he'll be long gone.
    Both find someone else, though it's sad,
    And they never quite forget what they had.

    Chorus
    Love is patient, kind, and true;
    This is what I want from you.
    Steer away from what the world tells us to.
    Love is enduring and lasting and strong,
    Unlike the brokenness of a country song,
    And real love is never really gone.
    This is why I'll wait for just the right man,
    Someone like you who will understand.
    You'll be for me what no one else can,
    And I'll say, "The truth about love is
    I can only find it with you."

    Bridge
    Only with you will love ever be true,
    We'll go against all the things the world tells us to do.
    We'll be different, make it last,
    Won't fall in love too hard, too fast,
    'Cause the truth about love is
    I can only find it with you.

    Chorus
    Love is patient, kind, and true;
    This is what I want from you.
    Steer away from what the world tells us to.
    Love is enduring and lasting and strong,
    Unlike the brokenness of a country song,
    And real love is never really gone.
    This is why I'll wait for just the right man,
    Someone like you who will understand.
    You'll be for me what no one else can,
    And I'll say, "The truth about love is
    I can only find it with you."

    'Cause there's only one love that will ever be true.
    Stay Strong,
