Poetry: Language of Love

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

When you look at me 

I see diamonds in your eyes,

When you touch me

I feel the vulnerable meet.

 

I melt in your presence

I melt in the moments

We have alone

We share being one.

 

You see me through

The grid of love

You see me with such 

Eyes of hope.

 

I cannot help but find

A new peace of mind,

For you speak to me

The language of love. 

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

Poetry: I am Yours

By Monica C. Voskamp

I feel your fingers clasp over mine.
I feel the warmth of your heart.
I feel the protection of your spirit.
I feel the goodness of your soul.

And I relax. I trust. I relinquish.

My hands. My heart. My body. My soul.  This I give. This I promise. This forever.

 I am yours.

Poetry: Our Story

By Monica C. Voskamp

Only You could’ve spun such a tale

So magical and mystique

So much like make belief

Our incredible reality.

Only You could’ve chose a star

To light the way in our hearts

To conquer every disbelief

Our story of hope.

Only You could’ve nudged our souls

To forage passages of time

To trust sunrise would weave

Our stories into gold.

Poetry: the Beautiful

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

You didn’t know

That road of tears you walked.

You didn’t know

That weight of grief you held.

You didn’t know that all would lead

You straight here to me.

You didn’t know the beautiful

That we both finally see.

 

You didn’t know

How many nights I prayed.

You didn’t know

How many times I cried.

You didn’t know how I stumbled

Through the dark parts of life.

You didn’t know the beautiful

How you and I complete.

 

You didn’t know

That sparkle in my eyes.

You didn’t know

That smile on your face.

You didn’t know the way we touch

Is like a sweet summer’s rain.

You didn’t know the beautiful

That our story would be.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love. ❤

Poetry: Man of Ocean Heart

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

Did I tell you this before?

You have the heart of an ocean

And love an ocean wide.

 

I look out on the vast

I see strength rising

Deep  oceans waves swelling

Grace  pouring ov’r and ov’r.

 

Man of ocean heart

The sound of you

Is rhythmic sweet

Waves on the shore.

 

The sound of you

Is calling my heart

Voyage together

Sail far away

On a bed on stars.

 

Did I tell you this before?

You have the heart of an ocean

And love an ocean wide.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love.  💞
