It strikes at unusual times
In strangest places

We wait in vain for lovers
To shine like the moon

    I haven’t thought of that song in forever. It’s a good one. You’re so right about love coming in unexpected ways. I am trying to be more open to it.

    I love reading Haiku. I’ve never been so great at writing it, as I tend to be verbose. Love the one about trust.

    Awww, I love that song. My Papa used to sing it to me when I was a little girl.

    Haha, when I read your post title, I immediately had the Dean Martin song in my head! I agree that love can sometimes pop up in the strangest places.

    It sounds odd, but my relationship with my husband hasn’t really changed all that much in the 11 years we have been married. I still am as thrilled to be with him as when we first married!

    This post made me think of my grandparents. They used to sing this song all the time to us. They were married over 60 years too. That’s love!

    The dark ages art is so beautiful. What detail that we aren’t capable of anymore!

    our love has changed immeasurably over time. how can it not? we’ve changed and grown, had kids, changed careers, aged…. but it’s a deeper love, a less in love love, but a lasting one. and the friendship is still there, on a new level

    Beautiful post! I have been with my husband for almost 13 years – he’s my best friend!

    I so have that song in my head now. Maybe I can grab the kids and dance to the song in my head?

  13. 18/03/2014 7:26 pm

    This is a great post, I love the “emotion” that is shared.

  14. 18/03/2014 7:47 pm

    My husband and I have been married 7 years our love story started fast but has held on strong through lots of ups and downs. But love carries us through it all!

    That was one of my favorite songs when I was little. We did a ballet routine to it!

    I love Dean Martin’s version of that song. I too have a love of haiku but am not really great at writing it.

    I’ve learned a lot about love over my 30 years. Something totally change the way I feel about love.

  25. 19/03/2014 11:24 am

    Love the trust one! I believe trust is super important and everything is built upon it.

  26. 19/03/2014 12:15 pm

    I have been with my husband for almost 17 years. It has definitely went through all those stages over the years.

  27. 19/03/2014 4:37 pm

    after 12 years of marriage I’m experiencing a new kind of love for my husband. this one has a bigger friendship factor.

  28. 19/03/2014 8:30 pm

    Love this post 😉 I have a friend that’s doing poetry with her kids in their homeschool lessons. Haikus are so fun but I am not sure I would be good at writing them myself. I love the one about trust.

    I absolutely love that song. I’m totally singing it in my head right now. Thanks for sharing!

    It is such a beautiful poem (can say it like that?). I agree love is very much about trust, I can’t imagine someone loving the other without trust.

    Love does come in unexpected ways and times. That’s for sure.
