They call me Alaurilee

My photo
I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"The Flame of Love"

A beautiful bonfire of love burns in our hearts.
We sing the same song in our soul.
Miracles never cease to amaze us,
every day we grow.
Troubles come and go my love,
yet you and I survive.
Life may trip us up at times,
yet you and I, we thrive.
My inner flame shines with you—
it absolutely glows.
Yet even when I’m burning dim,
your loving heart—it knows.
We are each other’s balance,
at times when nothing is.
We are each other’s strength
when fear and pain grabs hold of this.
We own our love with passion,
embracing heaven on earth;
all of this a miracle so sweet,
we couldn’t ask for more.
A blessing so fruitful—
—as long as I have you.

Inspired by a life prompt:
The photo of a bonfire taken tonight outside of our friend Jim and Shirley's house. They share a very powerful, deep, spiritual love much like shared between me aka @grnladybug and my hubs aka @uanmeintn ~ this poem is for them, for us and for all who share a flame of love.
