Till Time Until Eternity

From no where she found him

the boy the sea captain

like a ship lost at sea

Drifting aimlessly

at the mercy of the winds.

Cruel and cutting winds

leaving his soul tattered

tired and bruised.

He was healed by her words

he was healed by her thoughts

he was healed by her love.

The storm clouds lifted

replaced by a rainbow

as sunshine chased

away doubt and despair.

With a gentle kiss

she sent him away

and left the boy

the sea captain

To say walk out on us

but not be gone forever

to always give their love a chance

never say never.

There he now sat in his boat.

A harbor far away wondering

and wandering

how long was forever.

Time was now

written on his soul

written on his face.

He would hold her

whenever forever

Till time until eternity.

About romanticlovepoetry

I was born in Bucharest, Romania and immigrated to the United States when I was almost twelve years old. Here I obtained an B.A. from Princeton University and a Ph. D. in Comparative Literature from Brown University. At Princeton, I met and fell in love with my husband, Dan. We live in Michigan with our two children, Sophie and Alex. I taught philosophy and literature, focusing on the Romantic period, at Boston University and the University of Michigan. Since 2003, I've been working with a group of international artists on postromanticism, a contemporary art movement that I co-founded with the Mexican sculptor Leonardo Pereznieto. Postromantic artists strive to express beauty, sensuality and passion in their artwork. I do the same in my scholarly book "Romanticism and Postromanticism" (2007) and in a collection of love poems, "The Painful Poignancy of Desire" (2007). If you're interested in taking a look at this art, our website is postromanticism.com. I'm also a fiction writer. My first novel, "Velvet Totalitarianism" (2009), describes a family's survival in communist Romania due to the strength of their love. You can find out more about me and my writing on my author's profile on Notablewriters.com.
