Only One Way - Poem by Argentine Tango

I’ve lived and loved,
I’ve loved and lost, and
I’ve learned that
There are many ways to love,
But only one way to love you -
Madly, boldly, perpetually, unconditionally.

Never did I think I’d find a love
As strong as ours outside of my dreams, but it’s
Unmalleable, unbreakable, palpable, uncontrollable.

Hold me close and I lose track of time.
Close the distance between your lips and mine,
Give me a look that says what’s on your mind,
Just look at how your laugh makes my smile so wide
And it’s easy to see we belong,
Like sails to a ship, like song to a rhyme.

I’ve lived and loved,
I’ve loved and lost, and
I’ve learned that
There are many ways to love,
But only one way to love you.

    i would say the keyword in this is unconditional. that would be the hardest for most. as most of my poems are written with unconditional love. well written and very song like. (Report) Reply

    Very nice. You captured that something that makes up true love. That something that is so hard to explain outside of emotion. To capture it in words is so rewarding. (Report) Reply
