Christmas Cactus Series – 2013 (My Heart Burns with Love)

Burning Love

My Heart Burns with Love

The burning,

The yearning,

My heart is full of love for you.

You’ll never know the depth,

It cannot be seen.

Actions may at times lead you to believe you know,

But,

Life’s ebb and flow cause you to blink,

And in that instance your mind questions

My devotion to our link.

My love, like art,

Is timeless,

And priceless.

It will forever be.

As the touch of a feather

Lingers on your skin,

So too, will my love endure

A gentle breeze,

A cajoling force,

The unthinkable.

Oh the burning,

The yearning,

My heart is full of love for you.

Note:  In the Victorian language of flowers cactus flowers represent “endurance” and “my heart burns for you”.  The poem above was written with the aforementioned meanings in mind. Notice the red heart in the center of the bottom petal….I love the little miracles of nature!
