I saw it in your eyes

You know I love you, right?
I’d say, Yes dear, I love you too.
Always after you teased me
Or acted like a shy boy
Or said something I couldn’t understand
You know I love you, right?
You knew how much I loved you
And I knew you loved me

Then for no reason
Several times a day you’d say
You know I love you, right?
I’d give the same answer
With a hug and a kiss
Yes dear, I love you too
You said it so often
And I didn’t mind hearing it

Near the end you couldn’t speak
But I heard the words
You know I love you, right?
I saw it in your eyes
It was always in your eyes
Yes dear, I love you too

    Your poetry shows strong emotional restraint. I envy and respect that; mine is all over the place, and the poems themselves more often than not end up in various ditches of sentimentality.

    My ability to show emotional restraint is sometimes stifling. My writing seems stilted and I aspire to be able to write “all over the place.” But this is all I have right now. It’s going to take some time to learn to write with more sentimentality. The sentimentality is there. But it is difficult to express. Thank you for reading my blog.

    • But you did express it. I could “see” your conversation with him. I could feel it. Your writing seems stilted only to you–because you have so much more to write, not because you’re writing with insufficient sentimentality. You simply have more to say. But what you do say–it is heard and felt.

    Tender and sweet, Natasha. I love the voice here; it’s a testament to the outpouring of the heart.

    Glad you left me a link to find you. And I will be following from now on 🙂
