heart failure – dverse

January 31, 2015

I slow my heart
That between each beat
I might love you longer


From → dverse, poetry

  1. Yes.. to be carried away in the now of moment.. is to love forever now.. in a moment of love that exists..nowever…:)

  2. A great strategy, bill! Didn’t think of it that way!


  3. It is nice to think that people would drop the world and their hearts for another.

  4. This is nice. ๐Ÿ™‚ Very nice. It is the kind of statement which forces one to shut up – and smile.

  5. What a wonderful idea!

  6. Absolutely breathtaking.

  7. Astounding!! A depth that is so subtle that I almost missed it. Bravo!

    Lovely, lovely – beautifully done, Bill You touch a chord here… With Best Wishes Scott

  9. We have but a breath of time. Profound words, my dear friend…

    • yes – when the heart stops – does the echo of love remain ?

      • โ€œLove is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.โ€ Mitch Albom

        • Yes – I like that one. Maybe like Gandalf our task is to at least leave something green and growing so our efforts are not in vain.

  10. So sweet, so romantic…

  11. This is really beautiful… So much said in only three lines…

  13. This is exquisite.

  14. Lovely.

  15. Still for me it isn’t the length of time, but the depth of love that matters. A succinct and lovely poem.

  16. Gorgeous

  17. Really beautiful…volumes spoken between the beat of each word.

  18. This is very sweet, Bill! Happy are those who can express this kind of feelings.

  19. What a perfect expression of undying love–captured in so few words. Wonderful!

  20. Slow & slower ~ Love this ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. ah if only we could buy more time with the ones we love…
    that we could slow this life…to savor each moment between beats…
    lovely sir.

  22. This is real deep love.. how can it be expressed better. Love is not the passionate heartbeat but the gentleness of a slowly beating heart.

    Perhaps that is what we do by retelling stories to others, writing poetry, snapping photos–suspending & elongating & preserving moments in Time. They say in Zen circles, that on the other side of the veil, Time does not exist, it is all one continuous plane of NOW; cool premise.

  24. You sweet, crazy romantic! โ™ก

  25. Breathtakingly beautiful…

  26. The sentiments, as expressed, take my breath away!

  27. oh wow… that is beautifully expressed… there i moments i wish i could stop time altogether
