Falling in love

If I had one more heart

I would readily give it to you

And to you, you and

perhaps to you too!

But you see, the one I had, is already taken

Yet everyday, I keep falling in love

unplanned and spontaneously

my senses so easily enraptured

I fall in love with your sunrise

I fall in love with my dusk

I fall in love with traditional cooking

When the heady aromas envelop

I romance aromatic baking

For it brings a smile on my kids’ faces

Makes my home smell heavenly

And store bought cookies replaces

I fall in love with the angelic tangle of arms and legs

now asleep without a care

Whose sibling rivalry and revelry fill my home and heart

As well as my life and soul

I fall in love with your words, your turn of phrase

What you say and what you leave unsaid

I fall in love with the verses that reach out to me,

The stories that only your mind can create

Your unique experience that you kindly share

I fall in love with the pictures of blooms and pets you send

I fall in love with the magic of movies

And their world of wondrous make- believe

I fall in love with many a books

Their life like characters and their authors

And the belief and conviction that they portray

I fall in love with the music I listen to,

The singer, the writer and the musician

I fall in love with the raindrops falling

The overcast skies and the crescent moon

I fall in love hopelessly and completely everyday

And as my whimsical heart waxes and wanes in love

The one who captured my heart many moons ago

Sits in a corner looking indulgently

At the shenanigans of my wayward heart

He draws me close and holds my hand and says

” Your heart is not my captive, let it love and love freely

As long as I have a place in your heart

Accommodate as many loves as you can”

Thus, in freeing my heart, he captures it again.

  1. Indeed it continues to whisper within…the element of renewal is evident in love’s refuge to every smallest piece of creation…as the great poet said, ‘thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure…’
    The poem conveys such pleasure…such delight…endless forms of love…its divinity in multitude…its infallibility and virginity at every point of renewal…its longing in itsel and its submission to itself too..
    Love to get a few glimpses of your page…will explore it more to walk through its magical paths…my regards

  3. Such is a life well lived. Sometimes one can forget that love takes many forms, not just focused on a love of certain people in one’s circle. To love life is a wondrous thing. Beautifully written, Punam. ❀

  4. Wow! Would you like to know what immediately came to my mind while reading your words? God is everything! And when you know God, walk with God, have a relationship with God, all in your life, you fall in love with. There is no end to love when you know God. Powerful words. Thank you! xo

  5. Oh WOW, isn’t this rich and full of LOVE! The opening lines remind me of a lovely song from a movie popular with children–shall I find it for you?
