Immortal Words


The first time I said the words ‘I love you’
Forever seemed a vast expanse of time
Immortal like words captured in a rhyme
But it’s no time at all between we two
The truest words uttered every day
From the moment the alarm rang its chime
First spoken then shown in a kissing mime
For love is shared in all every way
In that last kiss before we say goodnight
‘I love you’ sends the heart to rest sublime
For now, I think “we are” instead of “I’m”
And as my eyes close they hold you in sight
Forever seemed a vast expanse of time
Immortal like words captured in a rhyme

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
