This poem was inspired by the poetry of Ethel Mortenson Davis entitled, The Sacred Space. I’ve always wanted to write love poetry, but have tried to stay away from being “gooey”. Have I succeeded? I’m also interested in knowing what your favorite love poems are. Please let me know.
I Will Be Your Sacred Place
I will never desire to hurt you,
nor touch you in anger.
I will be your shield from the destroyers.
I will walk in virtue beside you,
and be your sacred place.
I will see you,
hearken unto you,
and know you.
You will always walk in beauty before me.
I will care for you,
mourn with you in your sorrow;
and soothe you when you are troubled.
I will challenge you,
and intrigue you.
I will be your familiar,
and we will be comfortable together.
I will make you laugh,
and wish to be with me always,
but I will live longer than you,
so you do not have to be the one who grieves,
as the other passes.
