a poem about love

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, here is a poem dedicated to the Good Man and I on our wedding day. Listening to Nina read it was probably one of the most memorable moments of the evening. Thank you for your gift of love, Nina. We love you back.


Everyone says red
Is the colour of romance,
With hearts and valentines
But what about the deep orange hues
Of a candle flame?
Or the golden yellow glow
Our fondest memories possess?
What if it's really emerald shades
Of early mornings spent together in silence?
Or, could it be blue like the sky
That stretches forth to infinity
in nature's imitation of our bond?
Dare I say it might be
The indigo skies of long nights
Spent warm in each others' arms
But maybe it's the iridescent violet shine
Of my heart, like swallows' wings
Strong, and never waning in its course to you

So love, let us abandon simply red
And colour our lives
With a rainbow of love
