My Poem “The Romantic”

I have always been a romantic...
I have always loved caring
for someone and showing them affection...
I have always understood the power
and the depth of the words of poetry
even before I knew that I too
had a heart and soul that was poetic...
I have always felt blessed
whenever I have been somewhere
with someone who I could look at
all day with spellbinding fascination.

I have always been able to look
at people and see what was inside of them...
I have always been able to hear the call
of someone's internal voice loud and clear...
I have always been able to see things
and situations through a multi-layered,
multi-textured and multi-coloured lens...
I have always been able to sit silently
and hear only the sound of my own
heart beating in my chest
and not once feel any kind of fear.

I have always been someone
who could wax lyrical about
what a single red rose can teach us
about people and about ourselves...
I have always been someone who appreciates
the power and the importance of ceremony,
traditions, keeping things
as they are for as long as they can,
because I am innately nostalgic...
I have always been someone
who knew that doing what you love
with whom you love is always
going to be good for your health...
I have always been someone
who loves meeting new people,
finding out who they are
and what their hidden story is -
because I have always believed
that there is a power of the universe
that can only be known and wielded
by those who are openly romantic.
