Love’s Awakening

Love's Awakening is a stirring love poem by the incomparable poet, Ruth Desjardins

Love’s Awakening

Pleasures that grow

And turned into joys,

Delights that became excitement,

Love that awakened

And stirred in my soul


With whispers of sweet enticement

Sparks that crackled

Created a glow

And a warmth that steadily deepens

Becoming a passion

That I’d never known


And a love that demanded its freedom

A love that awakened

The best in my soul

And helped me to see what I am;


A love that I had longed for

Kept calling to me –

A challenge, and firm demand.

A challenge to virtue,

Demanding my strength,


Insisting on dreams and ideals,

Filling my soul

With a wonderful joy

As I seek to make it real.
