Love Her

love her

Love her

Love her because her mind excites you

Ask her questions

Love her because she makes you see colors with more brilliance

Shine brightly for her

Love her eyes and the depth they carry

Speak to her with them

Love her because you can’t help but watch her from across a crowded room

Never stop looking just because she isn’t

Love her because there is nobody you would rather sit in silence with

Feel her heart in that silence

Love her because her laugh is contagious

Make her smile as often as you can

Love her because her emotions run deep like the tides

Be there no matter how high or low those tides are

Love her when she is sick and love her when she is well

Bring her warm soup and fresh cut flowers

Love her because her heart is pure

Hold that heart with honor and delicacy because it is special

Love her words

Write her poetry and leave her love notes

Love her because her soul is kind

Speak to her with warmth and sincerity

If you truly love her, you must love her well

She is love, she deserves nothing less

If you can not love her this way,

let someone who can

Love her.

  1. Oh, My Dear Alisa!! You never cease to amaze me with the depth and emotions of Your works. The delving into what True Love is. I am still trying to catch my breath after reading this, yet another masterpiece from You!!! Too much and too many lines to highlight but here are a few — more than a few!
    Love her eyes and the depth they carry

    Speak to her with them

    Love her because you can’t help but watch her from across a crowded room

    Never stop looking just because she isn’t

    Love her because there is nobody you would rather sit in silence with

    You keep hitting all the right buttons for me! “Her Eyes”, “Unspoken words”, “there is nobody you would rather sit in silence with”. Such a brilliant and elegant expression of True love, adoration and contentment with another!! And what is rightly deserved for one that is “Beloved”.

    And again, You give us the full force and beauty of Your signature flourish in Your ending here:
    She is love, she deserves nothing less

    If you can not love her this way,

    let someone who can

    Love her.

    Bellissimo, Belissimo Alisa!!! Stunning!!! Simply and beautifully stunning!!! Put this in a frame and hang it on Your wall !!!

    • I am having to go back and read all these poems to see what it is you see lol. I write them and then often forget. Perhaps I will make a little poem wall actually? Good idea! I am going to percolate on that one.

      • Hey, I would actually like to read your impressions and evaluations of your read through of your past works. What You think of them now. Do they still grab you. Do You see what I did. Which words or phrases still hit you as a poet or just emotionally as a person. Offline??

      • I can give you my thoughts right now! Best time to capture them, I have a coffee in hand lol. I actually found that I quite enjoyed your review and that it spurred me to go back and read them. I don’t often go back and read my work unless someone ask me about it. It reminded me that I should more often. Poetry/writing has a way for me of capturing little moments in time/thoughts. It was a nice little walk down memory lane so to speak. Poetry for me is like looking out a window, a framed view at a particular point in time. The frame can always be the same, as with the window but the view is always changing.

      • Thank You, Alisa! Loved Your evaluation!! I am a little scared to go back and read some of my older works “From the Dark Days” 1996 -1998. Not sure how they would be received? I love them for the therapy they were for me during the my 2nd divorce. Part of the reason I’m “The Reluctant Poet”

        I loved the way that you described poetry as capturing little moments in time. That is true most of the time but sometimes a poem aspires to and captures a broader sweep. You should dig out Your best and share some of the older ones – Please!!!!!

      • Writing really is so cathartic when you are processing anything, poetry in particular I find. I always feel like it is kind of like shaking life off when you can write about things. Ah, the dark days;) I find the gift in looking at those often is the reminder of times when we didn’t feel like we would ever see the other end of hard times, these remind us “hey look I did survive” lol.

  3. Alisa, well said. “Love her well,” says much. It could almost be a feint chorus at the end of each stanza, almost like the response in church to a passage.

    Response: Love her well.
