Limerick Challenge – Love

This week’s Limerick Challenge organised by MindandLifeMatters set the prompt LOVE.  The rules state that either the prompt word or a synonym is to be used in the limerick.

This week I have substituted love for devotion, you could argue that one grows into the other. It certainly does for my entry this week:


Old age had robbed him of motion,

Never found was the youth-giving potion.

She knelt, always near,

Softly wiping his tears,

With her lifelong, unfailing devotion.


Head on over to MindandLifeMatters if you feel like having a go at this week’s challenge. There’s a gift voucher on offer to the winner every week if you need motivation?

    It’s very beautiful. Just saying beautiful cannot describe how I’m feeling. Touching.

  5. Ha! I had a similar thought: to write about lifelong love… Now I will have to do something silly instead! Really beautiful!
