Christmas romance. A shadorma love letter.

For you;
Locked down,
Away,
From the one you love.

Dearest
My heart grows mundane
Day-by-day
Dull routine
No flutter, no skip, no ache
All; Since you’ve been gone

Memory
Even far away
You sweeten
And you soothe
The restless fear in my dreams
For you, are my light

Wanderer
A smile like Christmas
Calm but wild
Eyes that know
For you alone delved deepest
Lifeguard of my soul

The bells chime
And wishes disperse
This longing
Floats away
When heart’s traveller returns
Untamed, but love bound

Gift me Christmas
And I’ll still take her instead
Gift me the stars
And my heart will still be blind
But gift me some of her
A bouquet of lavender
That I may remember her scent
A slab of chocolate
That I may savour her taste
I make my wish to hold her again
To be free of longing
And dance this Christmas day.

Sometimes hope is all we have.

And hope gives us strength.

A Shadorma poem has a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
I’ve always thought it’s perfect for love themed poetry. I do hope you enjoy this.

Hey there.
I see you,
And I send my merry love.

Stay safe, and be merry. It’s been a tough year.
