About the Poem

This poem was written for a friend of mine who was trying to answer a question he was asked. But really, love is not a question of ownership, it is a gift from the heart. May you find someone in your life that loves you completely, no matter the circumstances or the complications.

The Question Of Belonging

The question was . . .
"Are you in love with a woman you can't have? "
That certainly is not true;
I may not always be yours physically
But I certainly belong to you.

You are the light in my eyes
The smile upon my face;
You are the beat of my heart
You are my arm's most treasured embrace.

You are my first thought in the morning
My last one when I close my eyes at might;
You are the one my love embraces
And one day I will be by your side.

So, you see, your friend was mistaken
For we love each other that is true;
I may not share your last name
But I certainly belong to you.

It takes a lot of courage and talent to express your feelings with as much grace as Judy did. The complexity of the emotion was presented with so much heart.
Very good!
I really liked this poem. It is very touching and it also fits in with a situation that I am dealing with. I have it saved to my favorites. I am just wondering if the author wrote this because this was going on in her life? Good job Judy.
sigh, good one
