That’s All He Knew

Spring Clouds and Flowers 016

 

The years they’d taken their toll,

love had come and gone,

once too often –

for it to ease his mind.

When she’d come along,

it was like the sun,

coming out to shine.

After the grayest of days,

their early years,

were full of discovery.

Hand holding and kisses,

there were no tears,

there was no time for them,

just too few hours,

to spend together

or so it seemed.

Love had come,

so unexpectedly,

suddenly she was his morning sun

and the one he sought –

when day was done.

Then came the storms,

that seemed to follow them,

the troubled times –

when nothing seemed right.

But she swore her love

and cried when he wanted to leave.

He’d sigh and he’d stay,

because he loved her

and that was all he knew.

Happy days that seemed like heaven

and cloudy days –

that seemed like eternity.

Over and over again,

until he didn’t know,

what would come in the end,

he held her when she cried,

comforted her and forgave her.

He loved her

and that’s all he knew.

Oh, so many times,

when he’d swear,

this was the last time,

when there was one argument,

too many –

she never seemed satisfied.

But love him?

Yes, she swore she did,

so he’d long decided,

he couldn’t live without her,

he’d do everything,

to turn things around,

because he loved her –

that’s all he knew.

  1. It sounds as if communication was severely lacking. Where did the storms come from? I love you is great, but consideration and communication are key.
