At first Glance

At First Glance

At first glance a fire arose

I was afraid and waited in repose

Not knowing exactly what to say or do

You stepped my way and my heart was through


A feeling was bursting inside of me

I was afraid, but fearless I would be

I took your hand and chanced a moment’s glance

Burning with desire, with you I danced


Your eyes met mine and I looked deeper still

To see inside, what would be your will

To me would you be pure and new

And love me strong, be forever true


In short time, our love would stronger be

Joined together, was all we could see

For even a short time of absence from you

Made me long for your special love brew


I moved away from all I faced

To love and grow in your embrace

We’ve loved each other forever it seems

And you, my love, are from my dreams


How over the years, our love has grown

And with a son, our love is shown

For in our hearts, burns our love still

With each day may we find our will


To thank each other for a loving smile

For taking each other's hand and walking the miles

My heart is glad and hopeful, too.

Forever will, our love be true


-M. Jacobs

It is very rare that I envy another man, but this poem speaks of such a strong bond, that I cannot help it. Beautiful write - 10 from me



Thanks Artie, means much coming from you, an artist I admire. I dropped off the grid for a few weeks and I have been kinda a busy lately. I'll be back. Be patient with me good friend.

Beautiful write Maid Marian. You touched me with this one. I couldn't have said things better myself. I, too, love my wife very deeply. We are so right for each other it seems. We have 2 wonderful teenage sons that bear witness to our love. Treasure these moments. Make sure your husband reads this. You are gifted my dear friend. All of your poems speak with such passion. I can feel it with every stanza. You must get tingly when you write. Almost can't wait to finish and post it. Keep it up. Great job once again... Kevin



Thanks so much for your comments.

It is so nice to read of a positive and a strong love!



I know I am blessed with a loving husband and a good marriage. I am grateful, too . Thanks for reading and sharing.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
