When It Comes For You

I have written a poem before called “When It Comes” and it does have the feel of a similar idea. But this one came to me this evening, and although the title and the feeling is similar to the other one, I’d still class this as original. I hope you like it.

It could arrive in poetry,
With words of dancing prose;
Pictures conjured with such words
From whence nobody knows;
But you will know the truth of it
When it comes for you.

It could be heard in music sweet,
The calling songs of old;
Such imagery so brought to bear
With symphonies of gold;
But you will hear the heart of it
When it comes for you.

It could be seen through artists eye,
With inks and oils arrayed;
A canvas used as widow clear
To view the world displayed;
But in such art you’ll see its soul
When it comes for you.

It could by nature be revealed,
In falling sunlights beam;
To set aglow like honeyed fire
And cause a precious gleam;
But in such light you’ll feel this love
When it comes for you.

So don’t refuse or turn away,
Embrace this precious chance;
Be not afraid to free your heart
And give it reign to dance;
For love will nurture, fill and bless
When it comes for you.

    The title had me imagining something totally different. This is gorgeous, Simon. Yay for those who aren’t afraid to embrace when it comes for them.

      The title also threw up some different images for me… Maybe I’ll reuse it for a darker themed one. Thanks for the support, as always Jaded 😊
