An Inseparable Love--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

An Inseparable Love

Love is a spirited emotion
that stirs the heart…
It is a connecting power
of lasting friendship.
Love is a smile that comes
from the depth of the soul;
its penetration is a warm feeling
that is all yours;
when shadows of sorrow bring sadness,
love embraces with a comforting assurance
that you’re not alone in your pain…
I understand this, and so do you:
For this is an inseparable love
you and I share.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.


  1. Dear John, how accurately you describe the way love brings us comfort and joy. I especially enjoyed the lines: "Love is a smile that comes
    from the depth of the soul." I had never thought of it this way before, but it's true. I was not surprised to learn you are a retired language arts teacher. I taught creative writing and journalism, so I know when I spot a pro. Well done! Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire

  2. Thank you, Jack Horne, for the following comment--

    beautiful romantic write

  3. When one is surrounded with true love, the soul is content. Without it one drifts from place to place trying desperately to stay afloat. Beautiful words...
